Ham Sauce (in Italian, Salsa di Prosciutto) is a relatively quick and simple sauce used to coat pasta or served over rice. This is *not* a glaze for baked ham, rather a sauce on its own that incorporates ham.
Quick and Easy Modern Recipe
- 3 to 4 oz. ham or prosciutto, cut into strips
- 1 tsp. tomato puree
- 1 oz. butter
- 2 cups vegetable stock (meat stock also fine)
- Melt butter in small saucepan and gently sauté strips of meat.
- Stir in tomato puree.
- Add stock and simmer for about five minutes.
- Serve over rice or toss with pasta.
Cut up an ounce (28g) of ham and pound it in a mortar, then mix it with three dessert spoonfuls of port or Musca and a teaspoonful of vinegar, a little dried basil and a pinch of spice. Boil it up, and then pass it through a sieve and warm it up in a bain-marie. Serve with roast meats. If you cannot get a sweet wine add half a teaspoonful of sugar. Australian Muscat is a good wine to use.
