People tend to think that Jamón/ham shavings are a waste product of the Jamón without taking into account that they are one of the most unique products obtained from it. If you want to buy Iberian ham shavings, we tell you all about them -what they are, why buy them and how to eat them- to fulfil our real objective: to make you enjoy eating Spanish ham/Jamón. Discover what ham shavings are and everything you can do with them at your table!
Just because it is chopped ham does not mean that it is the remains of the ham. Ham shavings should never be confused with leftovers or trimmings. Many people are unaware of the virtues of real ham shavings, but there is actually more flavour in them than in a slice. To obtain this delicacy, machine-cut pieces of meat that can no longer be sliced due to their proximity to the bone are used, and it is precisely for this reason that the flavour of the shavings is much more tasty and intense.
Apparently nothing can beat the appearance and flavour of a freshly cut slice of Jamón, with its streaks of infiltrated fat if it is an Iberian ham, but in the case of shavings, it is precisely this fat that gives the product its flavour and aroma. Likewise, the virtue of this cut is its proximity to the bone, which gives it a unique, intense and penetrating flavour, completely different from the rest of the piece. They can also come from a slice that has stuck to the knife because it is too thin. Full of flavour and very cured.
One of the most successful ways to eat and enjoy Iberian ham shavings is as a sandwich. In Enrique Tomás shops around the world, you will find our star product: the Iberian Jamón/ham shavings sandwich. You can also choose the cones of ham shavings that allow you to enjoy the shavings on their own, and appreciate their authentic Iberian flavour. Moreover, it is an ideal format to take with you while walking around the city or to eat at the cinema with popcorn! To eat them at home, you can buy the sachets of ham shavings, in the size of your choice, and decide whether to include them in one of your recipes or if you prefer to enjoy them on their own as a good snack.
