Ibérico de Cebo- Iberian Ham Selection
In the Iberian peninsula we can find a very special breed of swine: the Iberian breed. This local breed of hog has a thousand characteristics that make it different from the rest of the world's swine. Yet, there is one that stands out prominently above the others and this is that it infiltrates fat into the muscle (marbling).
This fat infiltration is a key element and capacity of the Iberian ham-Jamón Ibérico that makes it a unique product in world cuisine. Exactly, the taste of the ham is inherent to this infiltrated fat. During the 24 months of dry-curing process of this Iberian ham, this naturally infiltrated fat has gradually melted and impregnated with the taste of the already delicious and tender Iberian meat. If we add this to the fact that added salt strengthens the taste, the outcome product cannot be more than a delicacy.
In Enrique Tomás we have a strict selection process to sort out the best hams. It is a very expensive selection because it is done one at a time. This is the only way we know, we have to ensure that this Iberian ham-Jamón Ibérico is as good as expected.
