So, I have had prosciutto wrapped around yummy melon many times, and seen it blogged about endlessly. While this delicacy is again another culinary treat given to us by my peeps (if you hadn't already guessed....Italians) I wanted to change it up a bit..........
Now, in my previous post I mentioned that there would be apple and pear slaughter commencing soon, and this thought inspired this post. Why not slaughter a pear in the name of prosciutto? Understand this, I can think of a lot of reasons to murder for prosciutto, but this seemed very fitting given the time of year. I also remembered that I had some fig infused balsamic syrup in my fridge that might be delicious with it, and with that, a fruit gave its life for meat :)
