Parma ham is prosciutto from the Parma region of Northern Italy—particularly the Langhirano municipality. Diners seek out prosciutto di Parma for its somewhat sweet, nutty flavor. It famously pairs well with Parmigiano-Reggiano, a celebrated cheese from Parma. What's more, the pigs that get turned into Parma ham are fed whey from this same cheese.
Parma ham is a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) food. This means it can only be produced in the Parma region under the authority of the Consorzio del Prosciutto di Parma. Legitimate Parma ham will have the stamp of the Ducal Crown with the word "Parma" in the middle. Price is for 100 gr
