Prosciutto

Postby Bwis53 » Fri Sep 23, 2016 7:31 pm

I used to go to a deli in Chicago, that sold this ambrosia at a very reasonable price. Today I bought 3 oz. for $5.99 (and that was the cheapest! at Metcalfe's).

I understand this might be a thread jack but as long as we're talking deli, would you happen to know of a place selling corned beef for less than $12 a pound?

Make your own corned beef, brisket's cheap. You just need to plan ahead.

We get our prosciutto at Fraboni's. I don't how different the price is but they slice it fresh, deli style.

Costco sells some prepackaged (I know) that's reasonably priced and really quite decent.

I get mine at either Gino's or Frabonis. Much cheaper, sliced the way you want or not. Love to use it with roasted brussel sprouts and aged balsamic.

ditto with Trader Joes. I love mine wrapped around some honeydew melon:) You can also get grated prosciutto at Copps and as long as you use it promptly, it's decent.

I like mine like my parents did, on some Country Madison Sourdough, with a little mustard.

Grated? Do you mean sliced thinly?

I second Fraboni's. I think I've paid between $12- $19/pound depending on sale prices or if I opt for the more expensive Parma.

The stuff at Costco is Parma, packaged as a pair of 6oz each. I think the price equates to about $18 per pound, if memory serves.

Nope- grated, which might not really be the proper term...it's a rough grate, almost as if it was hand chopped into small squares. Grate in creamed spinach;)
