UPDATE....
It's happening again... can't wait as promised... Cut open pork leg ( shunka aka prosciutto) about 2 weeks early just to taste and see how it goes...lol...
And it goes very good... good color, nice texture and heavenly taste...
From now, it goes back to hang in cold room and every 3 to 4 days I'll shave small platter full of goodies...
BTW... This home made prosciutto slices use home made, pear moonshine as UBER ride...
Goood stuff...

Thanks.. No patience here... to have perfect home made prosciutto pork leg it takes 18 month... In 40 years I managed only 4 times to wait 18 month long just cuz I had three pork legs going on at a same time...lol... Finished off two legs by the time third got 18 month old...lol...
It's hard just to sniff on goodie for 18 straight month ...lol
