Njeguški pršut at the time of curing with smoke

Njeguški pršut is a specialty of Njeguši, a village in Montenegro. Pršut is dry-cured ham, served uncooked, similar to Italian Prosciutto. Its particular flavour and aroma are, according to manufacturers,[1] the result of the mixture of sea and mountain air and beech wood burned during the drying process.[2][3]

The curing process includes salting with sea salt for about three weeks, pressing to remove excess liquid for about three weeks, light smoking and drying in the cool mountain breeze for three months followed by maturing process. The whole cycle takes about a year.
