New York Times: “Taste my prosciutto,” he said with a drawl. Southern country ham producers are waking up to the similarities between their products (selling at $4-5 a pound) and Italian prosciuttos (selling for $20-30 a pound). I always knew country ham was ambrosia, but I’ll have to find a way to try it thin cut to see if it really jumps across categories this way.
I know one thing: red-eye gravy and prosciutto di parma scares me a bit. Though, on days when I’m not watching my diet, a breakfast of a fried egg over a prosciutto slice is pretty damn ambrosial (making matters worse, you fry the prosciutto in butter). So maybe red eye gravy wouldn’t be such an odd addition.
