Lamb and Duck Proscuitto

We have converted a refrigeration unit to hold its temp between 50 and 60 degrees for our sausages. Each day we turn on a humidifier and blast it to create a moist environment. The lamb Proscuitto will be ready after three months and the Duck Proscuitto will be ready after ten days.
