Steam-cooked Ham is produced after the careful selection of the best pork legs, exclusively from Italian farms.  

It is among the best-known cured meats of the Italian gastronomic tradition and is particularly appreciated for its delicate taste.

Our steamed version stands out for the softness of its meat as well as its definitely unique aroma. 

In fact, steam-cooked Ham is fragrant and pleasant to smell and releases delicate spicy notes that make the scent of this cured meat persistent and agreeable. 

The same delicate and spicy notes perceived by the nose are found again while tasting it. 

The slices are pink and give off an intoxicating aroma that will make everyone fall in love with them. 

Steam-cooked Ham is great to eat with a hot, just-baked sandwich

This cured meat is appreciated by chefs all over the world: thanks to its delicate flavour, it is used in many recipes, such as meat rolls, to enrich dishes and make them tasty without covering the other flavours. 

It is excellent cut into small cubes as a filling for savoury pies, or rice salads. 

We recommend enjoying steam-cooked ham with a glass of Ortrugo Colli Piacentini DOC wine, known to be slightly sparkling and perfect for releasing the typical aromas of this cured meat. 

 

Processing

The processing employed to produce steam-cooked ham is what makes this cured meat unique.

It begins by deboning the previously selected thighs, which are the same ones used for the production of Parma Cured Ham DOP. Then the thighs are massaged for more than 72 hours in order to soften the meat and allow the spices to penetrate thoroughly.

Then the cooked ham undergoes a slow steaming process for about 18 hours, which makes it acquire its pink colour and its typical aroma and taste. 

Finally, the steam-cooked ham is packaged, pasteurised and left to cool.   

 

Historical background 

Cooked ham is one of the cured meats with the oldest origins. According to a number of testimonies, the cooking of pork legs dates back to the ancient Romans, who were the first to prepare this dish. The process was quite different from today since the meat was boiled together with dried figs and bay leaves that gave it a delicate spice. Then, after cooking, the ham was sprinkled with honey to create a sweet crust that was particularly appreciated by our ancestors, who used to enjoy bittersweet flavours. The processing of cooked ham has changed and improved with time until becoming one of the best-known and most appreciated cured meats in the world nowadays.
