Today on this cold winter day as I watch the ducks bobbing in the slushy and freezing water, I actually feel real bad for them, having to survive in these frigid temperatures. I quickly googled up on the science behind how they cope up with this since I knew that Mother Nature had everything in control :) But I always quote the ducks as an example to my daughter as to how they don’t have a cozy home but still adjust and live happily and how they stick by their parents and follow their lead in everything so obediently. She definitely seems to be fascinated by them just as much as me and it is a sight worth watching .
Prosciutto is a dry-cured ham that is usually thinly sliced and served uncooked. Prosciutto is made from either a pig's or a wild boar's ham (hind leg or thigh). The quality of prosciutto is entirely in how it's cured. The outside of the ham is usually rubbed with just salt and sometimes a mix of spices. This draws out moisture and concentrates the flavor while the ham slowly air-dries. This process can take anywhere from a few months to a several years depending on the desired result. Once cured, prosciutto is usually thinly sliced and eaten as is. In other words, uncooked - though we wouldn't exactly call the meat raw after it's been cured for so long.

Freshly ground pepper (optional)
