    Are you supposed to cook it?

      Yep. Then douse it in tommy sauce.

      Just get it thinly sliced and eat with crusty bread. Preferably accompanied with a bottle of nonno's cheap oxidised wine.
      Having said that, I'd forgo this one and go to a good Italian deli and buy some decent prosciutto which will be about double the cost of this 'bargain'.

        That and I am yet to ever find a (profanity) ColesWorth deli who can actually slice smallgoods correctly and nicely. Just hacked with an axe, slopped in a bag and rolled up like it's some dog food.

          my local Coles and Woolworths (multiple actually) get it right 90%+ of the time with tricky stuff like prosciutto.

      •  

        mm need to find myself a nice deli to try the proper stuff. most of the time Coles/Woolworths is good (I add some camembert into the mix), but would like to try some proper stuff at some point.

    Noting like destroying the soul of the person working behind the counter when you ask for 500Gms of paper thin Prosciutto. Good times.

    • +15 votes

      They just destroy you back by giving you 5 x 100g slices…

        lol I watch like a hawk. If I cant see through it, its no good.

      Imagine the guy that sliced that for you finds it left in some meat isle shelf. Even worse a non refrigerated shelf!

      When I lived in Italy, I used to ask the Lady in the SuperMarket sliced 400-500gms of Speck. I think she swore inside from time to time. Cold cut is one of the few thing I miss Italy the most.

      I feel bad for ordering it sometimes, especially if it's busy. then I learned not to care as much.

    Good prosciutto has got two ingredients: pork and salt.
    This is unfortunately not the case, and you get what you pay for with:

    Dried Glucose Syrup,
    Dextrose, Sucrose,
    Emulsifying Salt (331),
    Potassium Nitrate (252),
    Food Acid (300),
    Sodium Nitrate (251),
    Antioxidant (316),
    Lactose, Sodium Nitrite (250)

    etc
    etc

      Yep, looks way too cheap for top quality. This should be on the sister site OzCheap. :) Find me $100/kg Prosciutto for $50/kg, thats a bargain.

      •  

        Some prosticiuttos are cheaper than that.

        Where did you get the ingredients from? Where could you get good prosciutto?

          parma ham is guaranteed pork and salt only. Some north american prosciuttos are nitrates free.
          Nitrates (the bacon is packed with) are veeeery bad for you, and for me.

          @pentole: They aren't very bad and they prevent botulism.

        • -2 votes

          @Diji1: Meat treated with Nitrates and Nitrites are listed internationally as Class 1 Carcinogens.
          slow curing (takes time and $) is extremely low risk for botulism.

    Hi, ex worker in gourmet deli here. Can confirm Primo prosciutto is terrible - not aged for long enough, super salty, bad tasting, and as others have pointed out full of a bunch of unnecessary ingredients. I'm not saying all Australian made prosciutto is bad, but most is - especially what the big supermarkets stock.

    Pay the extra, get the Prosciutto Di Parma :)

    Why eat this when you can get fresh meat for like $10/kg @ most independent butcher or Asian grocery?
    This is way too much sodium for your kidney.

      Why drink wine when you can drink water for like $0.00 @ most water tap? 😂🤣😂

      This is way too much alcohol for your liver.

      •  

        Because water has zero taste. Fresh meat, on the other hand, you know it.

        •  

          How about wine vs grape juice? 😂

    •  

      Because they are very different products. Its like comparing yoghurt to milk.

  •  

    This deal gave me a boner!

  •  

    I make better prsut in my smoking shed.

    Enjoying some right now. Tastes great.
