Friday afternoon I stopped at Traverso's in downtown Santa Rosa to buy something cold to drink and found a prosciutto di parma sale in progress. Genuine prosciutto di parma is reduced from $32/lb. to $9.99/half-lb. until Wednesday.
The counter people know how to slice here, giving me a sample to make sure it was as thin as I wanted. It was almost gossamer, thin enough to see through but still holding together. I got six slices for a pre-dinner snack for two bucks. The prosciutto is quite delicate with a sweet and faintly salty flavor. I'm pretty sure that it was Fratelli Beretta but not entirely positive.
