So, what is presunto?

Presunto is a type of cured ham that originates from Portugal. It is made from the hind legs of pigs that are raised in specific regions of the country and fed on a diet of acorns, which give the meat a distinct flavor. The process of curing involves rubbing the meat with salt and allowing it to hang and dry for several months. The result is a rich, flavorful meat that can be sliced thin and enjoyed as a snack or used as an ingredient in various dishes. Presunto is a popular ingredient in Portuguese cuisine and is often paired with cheese, olives, and wine.
