High Steppin'

Feast your eyes upon the world's most expensive ham ... actually I think there is more expensive pork out there but, at $125.oo/lb, it might as well be. It's Jamón Ibérico de Ballota and it's from the black footed pigs of Spain that roam wild and feed mainly on a diet of acorns (ballotas). They only started importing to the US a few years ago. The amount you see in the picture was $7.50 for a total of 4 meager slivers of a cured pork product with the consistency of warmed butter.

I am not fat as hell. I am 115 lbs. and I am a self-professed prosciutto whore.
