Parma ham is one of the most popular Italian dry-cured hams. Citterio’s Parma and San Daniele hams are certified D.O.P, which stands for Denominazione di Origine Protetta, or Protected Designation of Origin. This is the European system for protecting the names of speciality food products with an ancient tradition and deep unbreakable bond tied to a specific geographic origin, in this case the southern province of Parma.

Citterio offers a variety of products that cater to different palates. For Parma ham with a delicate flavour, go with the Bellentani Prosciutto di Parma (Usual Price: $16.95), which is aged for 12 months. For Parma ham with a more intense flavour that has a balance of salty and sweet, opt for the Citterio Prosciutto di Parma (Usual Price: $10.95), which is aged for 15 months.

Citterio’s Prosciutto di San Daniele (Usual Price: $11.35) is produced in San Daniele, a small village in Italy’s north region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. The key ingredients used are high-quality pork legs and sea salt. It is cured for 15 months in an area where the winds blow from the Alps to the Adriatic. The San Daniele Ham has a delicate flavour and is sweeter than Parma ham.
