My birthday is on Monday and look what happened to show up today: a perishable birthday present from Laura and Sam. Hmm, what could it be? (I figure that if techies can post photo sets of them unboxing their new toys, I can post photos of me opening pig meat.)
It seems to be from La Quercia. There’s only one thing that I know they sell.
Salted pig. Very delicious salted pig.
A pound each of three different kinds.
Their original specialty, prosciutto Americano: salty and ever so slightly sweet.
Speck, a lightly smoked prosciutto.
Prosciutto piccante, sort of like spice speck but not quite.
Cutting it open.
Getting ready to pop some in my mouth.
It was delicious and I still have a lot left.
