Where to get cured ham?

dreday3000 | Feb 27, 2010 09:59 AM

Anyone know where i can pick up a nice leg cured ham?

I'd like to have a nice leg to hang in my kitchen to trim and devour over the course of a couple of weeks/months.

Two main questions:

1) If I get nicer leg, Serrano or otherwise - will I lose freshness if I choose not to refrigerate? I know the curing process is normally done dry but I worry I might loose some freshness if get an expensive cut and leave it out.

2) Where to get one? Went down to Eastern Market and a found a few options but didn't settle on anything yet.
