Ham Sauce (in Italian, Salsa di Prosciutto) is a relatively quick and simple sauce used to coat pasta or served over rice. It should not be confused for a glaze for baked ham—rather, it is a sauce on its own that incorporates ham.
Quick and Easy Modern RecipeEdit
- 3 to 4 oz ham or prosciutto, cut into strips
- 1 tsp tomato puree
- 1 oz butter
- 2 cups vegetable or meat stock
- Cut up ham, and pound it in a mortar.
- Add the port or Musca, vinegar, a little dried basil, and a pinch of spice.
- Bring mixture to a boil, then pass through a sieve and warm it up in a bain-marie.
- Serve with roast meats.
