Prosciutto di Iowa – Sky Full of Bacon 10

La QuerciaProsciutto from Iowa? Sounds like making furniture in Connecticut!  (Full disclosure, I am from Iowa, like pork products and we make our furniture in Connecticut.)  Number 10 of this series Sky Full of Bacon is worth a look.  The company is called La Quercia and the owners, Kathy and Herb Eckhouse, are thoughtful and passionate about their business of making traditional Italian meats in Iowa.  They have won acclaim from the food world and proven the naysayers wrong. They also have a sense of humor about it all. Kathy mentions, “Babe,” and that their pigs get to express their, “piggyness appropriately, and then they have a really bad day.”  And the prosciutto is delicious.
