The purity of the Iberian breed

The Iberian pig is a unique animal in the world, nobody can reproduce it and we can only find it in the Iberian Peninsula. This wonderful animal, in addition to its unique physical characteristics, has the extraordinary quality of infiltrating fat into the muscle, this capacity is not found in any other living being and this is what makes both the iberian ham and the Iberian ham shoulder have such a characteristic taste.

For a pig to be considered"Iberian" it must have a minimum breed purity of 50%, in which case only the mother was a pure Iberian pig. In these cases, the crossing with white pigs, the Duroc breed is the most common. From there, we can find 75% Iberian pigs, where in addition to the mother 100% Iberian breed, the father is a pig resulting from a cross between a white and an Iberian pigs and finally, 100% Iberian pigs, producers of the famous Jamón Pata Negra.

What is a Jamón and how is it made?

A jamón is the result of dry curing a pig's hind leg in salt. Depending on the type of pig and its diet, the months of curing vary substantially and its taste will also vary. Due to the large amount of meat in the same jamón, we will find different flavours: the “maza” is the softest part, the “contramaza” the tastiest and as we approach the bone we find more intensity.

Once we have the pig's leg ready, the first thing we have to do is prepare it for salting. The “cook” (the expert as we call them here) makes a v-cut on the pig's rind and decides how much external fat to leave. The more fat the leg has, the less salt it absorbs and the sweeter it gets. Once the previous operation has been performed, the leg is buried in salt for an average of two weeks. If the cook decides to extend this period, the jamón will be tastier. From that moment on, depending on the type of jamón we are going to make, the characteristics of the leg and the flavour we want to obtain, the leg will be hung in the special celler to dry until it is optimum for consumption.
