Tips and Tricks on How To Pick & Store Prosciutto

Here are some tips and tricks about prosciutto that I learn over the time and through my experience working with it over the years. I decided to share these with you, as before I came into the business, I would ask myself these questions everytime I find myself in front of a deli counter.

1. How to store prosciutto?

  • If the prosciutto is sliced, keep it in the coldest part of the fridge (usually in the bottom), make sure it’s well wrapped/air tight (preferably in plastic) so the edges do not dry.
  • For a full piece (not sliced) you can either refrigerate it in fridge or in the freezer. Always make sure the piece is well wrapped to avoid mould in fride or freezer burn.

    Thanks for the tips. I don’t buy prosciutto often, but when I do I never know what to look for. Now I do.

    Jason, I am happy you found it useful! And don’t forget the conversation is open. So if there is any points I didn’t cover, please let me know, and I would be more than pleased to answer them.
