Hipsterish? This is such on old style cut of meat it's historic! I get it, it's not for you....but your attitude about it is.....bizarre at best.

Don't think I've ever imagined it as fru fru or hipsterish. It's been around forever. Certainly not like a caviar or something.

20 bucks a pound for fracking LUNCH-MEAT........that has a very, very high fru-fruosity factor, no doubt about it.

No regular barfbags buying meat at that price....can't even pronounce the name. The Whole-foods Hipsters, and the like, buying that fancy meat, not me or other regular folks.

Lol if you think prosciutto is just lunch meat, don't waste your money!

Prosciutto is not simple lunch meat like Oscar Meyer.
It has been around since about the 2nd century.
It is not something you slap on a couple pieces of white bread with miracle whip and have a sandwich, chips and a pop.
It is used for many dishes but a lunch meat sandwich is definitely not one of those dishes.
It is also not remotely close to being "fru-fruosity" (whatever in hades that is supposed to mean).

Please leave the Prosciutto at the market, those of us who appreciate it and know how to use it properly will be happy to purchase your share.

The gal before me was getting samples of it and she kept exclaiming how good it was. I think she ate 10 bucks worth before it was my turn.

I asked a couple of other gals waiting in line if they knew what kind of meat it was. No one seemed to know. That made me feel better. So I tried a sample as I've never had it before...and I'm old. End result...what is the big deal? It's really, really chewy...I thought I'd choke before I masticated enough. I kept wanting to gag. I bought a few slices for the crew at home to see their reaction, (probably about two dollars worth...sliced see-through thin). It did kinda taste like cheese though...chewy cheese, that is.

I did ask the meat guy what it is and he said it's pork. I'm still not sure which part of the animal it is so I better google that. The label says Italy so I guess the pigs there must be awfully well taken care of at twenty something a pound. The best part of the whole deal is in the asking..."ah, excuse me...may I have a few slices of the prosciutto?" It's an opportunity to act like a snob. However, the experience isn't worth twenty something a pound...on sale.

Please tell me what is so special about it?



mmmm, Parma prosciutto is the best, I buy it online and have it in my home in 2 days time coming from Parma itself.

LOL - you said it, own it or deny it - apparently, that's how it works.

My mother used to make "ham pie" Easter time with the stuff. I have no clue what the recipe was, but it was good. Only time I saw it in the house.
