And so on Christmas day we had quite the table - Oliver's two year old prosciutto displayed proudly in its new holder, and a beautiful smoked ham Oliver made for our Christmas lunch with friends.
Both were sensational. Next year, we may do hams again for Christmas - if we have enough hind legs.
The prosciutto we cannot produce commercially. But if you find Oliver at our Harvest Market stall he will be only too glad to engage in a long conversation with you about it. Who know, if you become friends in pork, he might one day bring you a sliver of delicious contraband to whet your appetite!
