A rival to the famous Parma, San Daniele prosciutto is sweeter, and less salty, with an intense aroma. A pig thigh can only become a Prosciutto di San Daniele if it fulfils three conditions: 1) the origin of the raw material: thighs must come exclusively from pigs bred in one of ten regions in Northern Central Italy 2) Respect for the production method inherited from an ancient tradition, dated back to 400 B.C., that uses only sea salt to preserve the meat, with no chemical additives or preservatives 3) The curing must take place in San Daniele del Friuli as a vital ingredient is the air that prevails here, where the winds descending from the Carnic Alps meet those coming off the Adriatic. This is widely considered to be one of the finest cured meats produced in Italy, if not the world.
