Culatello - sliced
Country of Origin: United States
Region: New York
Culatello is known as the heart of the ham because it comes from the same part of the pig as prosciutto (the haunch) but it is trimmed down to only the tastiest portion of the leg.
We love this as the centerpiece of any salumi plate with a side of aged pecorino, some Ligurian olives and perhaps a drop or two of fine balsamic.
We slice this half pound thinly and package it in a vacuum sealed packet.
