The production area of Modena Ham is circumscribed between the valleys and the hilly area located around the Panaro basin, between the provinces of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
Its origins probably date back to the Bronze Age: the Celts were in fact the first to treat and preserve meat with salt, together with the Romans who enriched their banquets with hams from this area. Year after year, the peasant families began to see a significant economic opportunity: for this reason, the know-how of the product was secretly handed down.
Proceeding to the present day, in 1969 the Consortium of Modena Ham was established, to spread and enhance the importance of the product, further recognized also by the achievement of the Protected Designation of Origin in March 2010.
Prosciutto di Modena PDO can be defined as the "brother" of the more renowned Prosciutto di Parma PDO.
This ham has a slightly more savory and less fatty flavor than Parma Dop, an intense and characteristic aroma but all in all delicate.
One of the strengths of this ham is certainly the absence of preservatives and dyes; precisely for this reason, Modena PDO ham is suitable for any type of diet or nutritional need, from children to sportsmen.
The "24 months" type is softer and more delicate than the "30 months", it will be delivered vacuum-packed and ready to cut, with fire-stamped brand and label.
Tips & Pairings:
The characteristics of Prosciutto di Modena DOP make it a special ingredient in the filling of tortellini.
Also excellent in cutting boards paired with cheeses , especially with a slightly more intense flavor, such as the spicy Provolone Valpadana DOP.
Delicious also to be enjoyed only in thin slices, perhaps placed on a slice of soft bread.
Unmissable to accompany the Piadina Romagnola PGI during summer walks along the seafront.
This ham goes very well with both red and white wines as long as they are fresh, young and not too full-bodied.
Ingredients & Allergens:
Store at temperatures <7 ° C -10 ° C.
Keep the cutting muscle covered, to avoid oxidation.
It will be our care to ensure the continuous freshness of the product.
