How to choose the best Prosciutto for this recipe
- For best results in taste and texture, buy good quality imported Italian prosciutto such as Prosciutto de Parma, and look for the thinnest possible slices of prosciutto that can still be handled without tearing. In other words, don't buy prosciutto that is sliced paper thin because it will easily tear. But don't buy hard thick prosciutto that will be difficult to roll. Something in between, such as Citterio, is best.
- If you have access to a deli counter that will slice prosciutto for you, you'll want them to slice it so you get approximately 2 slices for every ounce of prosciutto. So If you're buying 4 ounces of prosciutto, ideally you'll have 8 slices of prosciutto.
