It shouldn't be dangerous. Once in awhile you get a package of commercial bacon
that's so salty that you can't eat it..I'm guessing that's the result of being cured
too long. Old time sailors use to carry salt pork on sailing ships..packed in barrels
with plenty of salt. That stuff would last for months. If you've ever had salt pork,
it is very salt, and usually requires at least a couple of good soaks before you can use it. Prosciutto is raw salt cured ham...cured a long time. Salt's quite a
preservative..if it smells o.k., should be all right.
