Serrano ham from Costco for charcuterie or pizza at home!
I enjoy making my own charcuterie boards at home to enjoy and I always pick up the ingredients to do that from Costco. For our most recent charcuterie board I picked up this La Sierra Serrano Ham. I have previously reviewed the Costco Cappola Prosciutto which I also like to use for charcuterie boards.
This can be found by the other meats and cheeses in the refrigerated section, the item number is 371171.
Serrano ham tastes very similar to prosciutto to me! Serrano ham is a Spanish dry-cured ham and is usually made from a specific breed of pig. This La Sierra Serrano Ham from Costco made an amazing charcuterie board.
This tastes like extremely tender, thin sliced dry-cured ham. It's soft, fresh tasting, delicately flavored, salty and not at all spicy. It pairs well with different dips and spreads, cheese, crackers and bread.
I paid $14.89 Canadian for the 500 gram pack of Serrano Ham.
I like how the 500 grams is divided up into two 250 gram separate packages. Unfortunately once you open the pack it doesn't really reseal. I did freeze some and it turned out fine when defrosted and I used it for pizza using the Molinaro's Pizza Kit from Costco. You can use this for charcuterie boards, sandwiches or for pizza! You can also use it to wrap around cheese sticks for a keto lunch or snack.
Two slices is 80 calories, four grams of fat, 660 mg of sodum, zero grams of fibre, sugar or carbohydrates and nine grams of protein. This makes an awesome item to add to your keto shopping list. If you're really watching your sodium intake, try to limit yourself to one or two slices.
I enjoyed this La Sierra Serrano Ham from Costco and would definitely buy it again! I got a bunch of different uses out of one pack and it also froze really well. I will say it basically tastes the same as prosciutto to me.
Convenience: 8/10 (would love if it resealed)
Give it a try!
Especially if you make charcuterie boards or pizza at home!
