In all fairness, you don't need 1 lbs or proscuitto. It's not like a standard highly processed cold cut ham. I can get away with only 1/4 lbs ($4-6) of proscuitto for a week. You only need 1 or two slices of thinly cut proscuitto for a sandwich, which is what they do in Europe.

As others have said, you really just need a bit of prosciutto to enhance a dish. A little goes a very long way in this case.

I don't buy it often, and when I do it's always in small amounts for a specific dish. I've never approached buying anywhere close to a pound of it.

Then think of an entirely different word - like "macerated."

Hum, I try to eat mainly fat and protein.......1-2 slices ain't going to cut it.

I am happy buying fresh or frozen meat at a reasonable price.........prostitutti-meat is not in my budget, much too fru-fru and Hipsterish.

To me, as a European, this is almost surreal.

Prosciutto is a delicious ham...not more or less. Not a luxury like beluga caviar or alba truffles. I prefer San Daniele over Serrano or Parma. It's great with fresh, wild figs, aged Parmigiano Reggiano and a little bit of very old, sweet Balsamico.
