One of the things I miss about not being able to eat pork is Country Ham and Proscuitto. Came across a menu the other day that featured Duck Proscuitto and figured to give it a go.
This is Day 2. Pulled it out of the salt and spice cure and wrapped it in cheesecloth to hang. 12 more days to go.
In the days before refrigeration, salt curing was one of the methods used to preserve meats.
Interesting. You can't eat pork but other high purine meats don't bother you?
Sunday night I finished it off with a Cherry Peppercorn sauce.
Interesting going to do some duck hunting this year..Maybe i'll drop off a couple..
You really want to have something great, next time you fire up the smoker, throw a pair of ducks in. Ask Alan, it's fantastic.
You do NOT want to eat fish eating ducks! Some folks do but not me :puke The best wild duck to me is a wood duck and I'd guess mallards are good to but I haven't eaten any. very rarely do they get down this far S.
It's Guinness and Heineken for me - after the longest, worse weekend of my life, I chose the Allopurinol :beer
But if I ever do go on it, the first thing I'm having is a pork chop wrapped in sausage surrounded with bacon on a country ham bed with bacon bits and bacon mayo washed down with a bacon shake and finished up with a bacon sundae. With a side of bacon.
Like mint condition; barely used!
But I hope you don't die, mitch.
The before and after.
[Disclaimer: Curing meats poses possible significant health risks. Make sure you do the proper research before attempting on your own.]
because pigs aren't cannibals.
yeah they are.:willynilly
Shall I make another batch?
If you do, I'll bring the wine!!!!
I didn't think there was any such thing as duck ham or duck Prosciutto?
Oh, and I though it was spelled Prosciutto?
I have found that basically anything that tastes good causes gout, and prosciutto duck sounds like it tastes good.
I have had it for years and take meds for it to prevent attacks. I have never been able to trace the direct cause of it.
Most of the time it is a result of not drinking enough water.
