Jambon Persillé, also known as “Parsley Ham,” is a traditional French dish that combines two key ingredients – ham and parsley. This delicacy originates from the Burgundy region of France and has become a beloved staple in French cuisine.

The final step involves pressing the mixture into a terrine or mold, allowing it to set and develop its distinct texture. Once chilled, Jambon Persillé is typically served in thick slices alongside crusty bread or as part of a charcuterie platter.
This delectable dish offers a delightful combination of savory ham with the vibrant freshness of parsley. The flavors meld together beautifully, creating a unique taste experience that is both rich and refreshing.
