You might be asking what the difference is on these two, or if there ever is such a thing? Well, let me tell you that you have made the right choice by clicking here today —- please read on to see all the wisdom nuggets I have to share with you this time, he he he he heh. I hope you like what’s up next….

Now, then, in this blog, I will point out that there is a difference between the two. The two are not necessarily the same…. so with that, I hope I have at least cleared up the confusion as many out there were still thinking they were the same thing. Nope. Now let me tell you some more, may I?

So first of all, I would like to point this out to ya, guys —- both kinds are cured meat. Make no mistake about that. Both are also, as you likely already know, very popular… well, depending on where you go and when, he he he he heh heh. But I could write a whole nother blog on just this point alone. But I won’t now —- anyways, most people can substitute one for the other, when they lack one…. and they often do. Yet the end result —- or should I say the end meal? —- will always taste just a tad bit different because you are technically using a different meat.

So the two meats can inter – change, and well, in fact…. but like I said, they are not the exact same creation, he he he heh. They are not the same exact meat. As a matter of fact, let me tell you this : capicola is basically a pig’s neck and shoulders whereas prosciutto is hind – quarters ( and can and does often take a longer time to cut, as well, in most cases…. whereas capicola is quicker to cut ) . The curing time for capicola, as such, is shorter. For many, this time – and – effort – saving benefit is the reason they choose capicola over prosciutto. Capicola is likewise cheaper, as well, which certainly contributes to people choosing it as well.

But let me tell you some more, for just a second….

Now, then, you might also find it fascinating to know that in the way of overall fat content, capicola is also known to hold a lot less fat. Some, would thus say, then, that it is a healthier choice of the two, as well…. for just that alone. Less fat, easier for one to lose weight… and even easier for one to eat more of it without feeling “guilty” or like a glutton, per say.

All true. So you might want to think about these things the next time you decide on choosing one over the other. For me, capicola is much more favorable!
