100% Iberian Ham Shoulder - Pata Negra


Bellota 100% Iberian Ham Shoulder

In order for a shoulder to be considered 100% Iberian acorn it must have 100% genetic purity of the Iberian breed, which means that its parents must also have 100% Iberian racial purity and must have won the final fattening at liberty in the montanera.

Weight: 5,2 - 5,7 Kg approx.

Iberian pig

In the Iberian Peninsula we find a very special breed of pigs. The Iberian breed. It has an infinite number of characteristics that differentiate it from the rest of pigs, but there is one fundamental one. It infiltrates fat into the muscle. This is what makes an Iberian shoulder have those white veins that make it a unique product.

Purity of the breed

The degree of purity of the pig breed depends, naturally, on the purity of its parents. In such a way that we can consider as Iberian pig any one that surpasses 50% of purity. For this we need the mother to be 100% pure.

Feeding of the Iberian pig

The first one hundred kilos of weight of any Iberian pig is obtained in the same way as any other pig. First breastfeeding and then with vitamin feed. An orderly diet is essential so that the animal is strong, muscular and has strong bones. 

The Montanera

Those pigs that are destined to give bellota Iberian ham shoulders carry out the final part of their fattening in the Montanera. From November, when it is cold in the mountains and the acorn falls naturally because it is ripe, the experts let the pigs that they want to finish fattening naturally free through the farm. For a maximum of 4 months, the pigs will eat all the acorns they can find, red fruits and lots of grass. They will walk a lot and drink a lot of water. When they have increased by 50% the weight with which they entered the field they will be ready to provide the marvellous Iberian acorn-fed shoulders.

Smooth Flavor

In Spain there are producers in different areas who put into practice their well-differentiated techniques when it comes to making hams and who are widely known for the tradition and quality of their results. In the case of a soft ham, the master ham makers, specialists in achieving this, are great experts whose knowledge comes from previous generations. A kind taste almost sweet and that everyone loves.

What's ham shoulder?

A ham shoulder is the result of curing the front leg of a pig in salt. Its taste is more intense than that of ham because there is the same amount of bone and much less meat than in a ham. It needs less months of curing than a ham.

How is a paleta (ham shoulder) made?
Once we have the pig's leg ready, the first thing we have to do is prepare it for salting. The cook makes a v-shaped cut on the pork rind and decides how much external fat he wants to leave. The more fat it has, the less salt it will absorb and the sweeter it will be. Once the previous operation has been carried out, the leg is buried in salt for an average of two weeks. If the cook decides to extend this period, the ham shoulder will be tastier. From then on, depending on the type of pallet we are going to make, the characteristics of the leg and the flavour we are trying to obtain, the leg will hang in the dryer until it is optimal for consumption.

Once the ham has started, it is recommended to eat it in less than 21 days so that it retains all its flavour, quality and properties. In summer it should be consumed in less than 16 days. Cut each time only the ham to be consumed at that moment and apply a lint-free cloth so that it does not give the light and is least exposed to the air until the next time it is to be cut again.
