Production: The process of production of this ham starts with the selection of thighs: they must come exclusively from pigs born and bred in ten regions of Northern Central Italy and respect the production method inherited from an ancient tradition. The selected thighs are then covered with sea salt and stored at a temperature between 0°C and +4°C. Traditionally, the salting time is calculated as a number of days equal to the number of kilograms of weight of each thigh. The thighs are pressed uniformly along the muscle mass in order to allow the salt to penetrate in depth and to give the meat a better consistency, this is a typical and exclusive processing phase of Prosciutto di San Daniele PDO, which provides the conditions for better drying of the product. The maturation of the thigh takes at least 13 months. After this minimum period  it can receive the fire brand from Consortium. At that time the thigh becomes a Prosciutto di San Daniele PDO.
