It will interest you
For a ham or ham shoulder to be considered 100% Iberian acorn-fed, 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 gained the final fattening in freedom during the Montanera season.
In the Iberian Peninsula we find a very special breed of pigs, the Iberian breed. This type of pig, unique in its kind, has many characteristics that differentiate it from other pigs, but there is a fundamental one: it infiltrates fat into the muscle. This characteristic is what makes an Iberian ham have these white streaks that make it a unique product.
The degree of purity of the pig's breed depends, of course, on the purity of its parents. In such a way that we can consider as any Iberian pig that exceeds 50% purity. For this we need the mother to be 100% pure.
A ham shoulder is the result of curing the front leg of a pig in salt. Its taste is more intense than that of jamón because there is the same amount of bone and much less meat than in a jamón. It needs less months of curing than a jamón.
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-cut on the pig's rind and decides how much external fat to leave. The more fat it has, the less salt it will absorb and the sweeter it will get. Once the previous operation has been performed, the leg is buried in salt for an average of two weeks. If the chef decides to extend this period, the ham shoulder will be tastier. From that moment on, depending on the type of ham shoulder, 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 until it is optimum for consumption.
