Duck Prosciutto and Cerignola Olives – Episode 123By
I came across this great duck prosciutto in Fairway the other day and it made me scratch me head a little- so Pulled the splinters out of my fingers and asked to see it- I was pretty sure they could not do it with the legs and make a slice-able product- So after taking a look at it for sure it was the breast-I figured this was going to be great or a disaster- did not see any room for a middle ground.
This stuff is great and its taste rivals some of the great dried meats of the world- Even giving some of the famed Spanish hams a go for it- GourmetLibrary carries this also so give it a whirl-
The Cerignola Olives are starting to pop up all over the place now- personally I love them however I fear their popularity is being gained by party hosts who normally put out a can of black olives in a bowl which do not get eaten and now are replacing that bowl with these bright lively huge olives that look more decorative than for edible. Well whatever the reason is I am glad cause they are good-
