Cured Meat 101

cured meats variety

Did you know our Deli counter boasts one of the finest selections of cured meats around? From delicate prosciutto to savory soppressata, we’ve got it all! Use this handy guide next time you’re building a charcuterie board or creating an epic sandwich:

Prosciutto is perhaps the most popular of the cured meats, and it’s easy to see why! Its delicately sweet, salty, and lightly smoky flavor pairs perfectly with a wide range of accompaniments.

Bresaola is sliced extremely thin and made with a simple recipe of beef, salt, and time. With a deep color and a deeper peppery, meaty flavor, Bresaola has risen to popularity once again as people try out protein-driven diets.

Genoa is one of the most popular salamis and pairs well with a mild provolone.

Soppressata, unlike traditional salami, has a much coarser grind and is often mixed with red pepper flakes. However, it is salted and preserved through air drying just as salami is. Soppressata is excellent on its own or can be served with a sliced Asiago.

Prosciutto Cotto means "cooked or baked ham" in Italian. Though prosciutto cotto is cooked rather than cured, its light flavor and delicate texture makes it the perfect addition to your collection of cured meats. Our Rosemary Cotto ham is great when layered on crackers with other flavors like fresh vegetables, herbs, or an artisan mustard.

Mortadella is an Italian favorite traditionally studded with pistachios. It is typically the star of muffuletta sandwiches, but you can also try it with a creamy mild cheese.

Jamon Iberico De Bellota is known as the jewel of Spain. Created from the ancient Spanish breed, these hogs are fed acorns, wild herbs, and mushrooms before being carefully tended to during a three-year curing time. The result is a sweet, rich, and complex ham that melts in the mouth.

Our team is ready to slice every meat to order, thick or thin, exactly as you like. We’re proud to carry one of the largest selections of deli meats available anywhere, and you’re bound to find something you love!
