Prosciutto Ham

Prosciutto is just dry-cured and heavily salted pig leg. The reason it's so expensive falls under the time to make each batch. The process of brining and hanging the meat can take upwards of 18 months. If you want to home-make prosciutto, it's going to set you back about $20 just for the salt. Don't worry, though; by the time it's done, you'll have accumulated more than a year's income.
