Pork legs boast a
thousand-year old history, and in the history of nutrition they have always
been clearly present, in fact they are the most valuable and expensive part,
and they are also used for the prosciutto, culatello, culatta and speck as well
as for cooked ham. And, since nothing from the pork is thrown away, the
trimmings of prosciutto are ground into the salami paste!
Jolly ham is pinky, compact, not too fat, covered with a
biscuit-coloured rind. It is characterised
by a good aroma, and it is the most flavourful among the range of cooked hams
by Levoni, even though it keeps its unmistakable sweetness. Upon tasting it is soft
and pleasant with a well-defined, satisfying flavour. The cooked ham is cut into thin slices with the slicer, after cutting the rind and removing it. It might be cut thicker according to the recipes.
Pairing and Wines
Cooked ham is a deli meat loved by adults and
children likewise, so it can be relished with a glass of milk or a glass of
fruit juice, a soft drink, a good beer and of course a glass of wine.
Jolly cooked ham is always the star of tasty gourmet sandwiches, whilst diced it is best served with peas for a delicious side dish, to season pasta or for a good risotto.And then ...
