Can I Freeze Prosciutto?

Q: I have been given a large piece of prosciutto, and as there is only two of us, it is too big for us to eat at one time. I would like to know if it can be frozen or how else to keep it, and for how long?

Editor: Prosciutto is a cured meat and will actually keep quite well for a few weeks in the fridge. I also think it would freeze fairly well, if needed — wrap it well to protect it from exposure to air and freeze for up to 3 months.

Readers, any other thoughts?
