Right, on the success of my Leg of Lamb Prosciutto, I have decided to plough ahead and go for a whole hog leg.
So it was off to the meat market (butchers....not the local night club!!!) and I managed to get a whole leg of pork for £28. When trimmed, it still weighed 8kg.
So, anyway, I have made a couple of videos and posted them on my Youtube page 'Rusty's Rustic Pantry'.
The links are here:

I made a bit of a school boy error so since making the videos, I have added some sugar to the cure, along with some black pepper and garlic powder.
Ill post videos and bits n pieces as I go along, but there wont be too much to report for 15-18 months!!!!
