Jearl Pino, one of the guys who likes to come around to the farm and help with various projects, bought a Globe slicer from some guy who advertized it on Craigslist. I suppose the machine was too big to keep at Jearl's house because he asked if he could leave it at the farm. We are free to use it at will and I've already begun breaking it in. And check this out: he paid $75.00 for the thing! It's probably thirty years old but it's in perfect condition.
Today I used it to slice up a prosciutto made from Berkshire pork. I hung this about 12 months ago. It's cured only with salt (sodium chloride) nothing else, and tastes just like the real thing -I suppose because it is the real thing.
