And you still haven't read anything anyone has posted, have you? It's not a slice of ham (since my pastrami reference must not have sunk in) to toss between bread (let me guess....you only eat white breads as well?) ......it's a meat item that is most often used to flavor other foods.

You are just being stubborn and basking in you own ignorance at this point....but I do have to thank you for starting this thread. Several other posters have reminded me, or suggested new ways, of wonderful ways to use prosciutto.

i haven't read all the post because they were too many, so sorry if i write something someone else has already written.
i'm italian, and italy is the country from witch Prosciutto come from (at least if you write it it this way). the prosciutto is the simplest "salume" (the "salumi" are a group of food made with pork meat and some flavors, that includes also mortadella, salami and so on.). there are different kind of prosciutto, the "prosciutto cotto" that in practice is similar to your ham

and the "prosciutto crudo", that i think you call just prosciutto. the most famous prosciutti crudi are the "prosciutto di parma" and the "san daniele".

we are used to cut the prosciutto (both cotto and crudo) in really thin slices. we can eat them alone, as an "antipasto", or in a sandwich (in italy the simplest sandwiches just contain prosciutto cotto), or in a piadina romagnola

i'm used to eat prosiutto with melon

there are also more elaborate ways to cook prosciutto (both cotto or crudo), but we are not so used to them.

Edit: oh, that's true, you can also put prosciutto cotto on the pizza

Regarding prosciutto - as some folks have already stated, it's not really something you eat all by itself, on a plate or in a sandwich. My favorite way to eat it is a wafer-thin slice wrapped around a chunk of provolone cheese and stuffed into a hollowed-out cherry pepper. That's probably one of the most common ways to eat it, besides wrapped around a chunk of ripe cantaloupe.
Some of our artisanal cheeses are $56 a pound. Naturally, you only buy a few grams, but when you do...heaven.
Not to make macaroni and cheese with.

Sounds like you haven't adapted to much of anything.
Every post you make is one of complaint, hostility or vitriol. Nothing good to say about anything at anytime.

I feel sorry for you. What a way to live.

HUM, I doubt you have read even 10% of my 7000+ posts, DONK!

I think you have drawn an inaccurate conclusion about me......based on my few posts ripping into
overpriced, highly fru-fru porklami...that the Yupsters seems so gaga over.
