Photo: Parma Ham Venice Italy

The famous Parma ham hanging on display in the city of Venice, in Veneto, Italy in Europe.

The famous Parma Ham seen on display in Venice, Italy is a true prosciutto (Italian for ham). This wonderful, tasty Italian ham comes from the province of Parma in Northern Italy.

The Parma pigs are not fed the usual 'slop' that most pigs get - these special animals have a diet of chestnuts and whey which produces this fine quality meat. The whey is the result of the Parmesan cheese-making process. The village of Langhirano near Parma city makes some of the best hams in the area.

Depending on the size of the prosciutto it can take 9 to 18 months before it is ready, in fact 'Traditional prosciutto' is cured for over 3 years. The Parma ham is not smoked, as other hams are, but air-dried and cured with sea salt.

Next time you use this unique Italian ham for an appetizer think of this photo of these Parma hams hanging on display in a Venice shop in Italy. ... continue below the picture...
