Ibérico de Cebo Ham Shoulder - Salamanca
A good number of factors are combined in this ham shoulder, that makes it impossible not to enjoy it. First of all, we are dealing with a breed of swine, the Iberian, whose main distinguishing feature is the capacity to infiltrate fat into the muscle. This fat infiltration is precisely what makes its flavour so unique and unmistakable. In addition to the Iberian breed, the ham shoulder is the front leg of the hog: the fact that the meat is closer to the bone, makes its flavour more intense than ham's (back leg).
Finally a hundred-year-old tradition of producing hams from Guijuelo, Salamanca, makes this ham shoulder very soft and delicious, appreciated by all the palates. This is definitely a great choice.

The Iberico swine are the source of the Jamón Iberico de Cebo; this breed of animal is a unique phenomenon of the Iberian Peninsula. Its characteristics makes it very different from the rest of the pigs; especially because one of the distinctive genetic traits of this breed is its ability to store fat in muscle tissue. Hence, those regular flecks of intramuscular fat (marbling) that make iberico ham shoulder so unique.
The Iberico hog reaches the first 100 kg of weight in the same way that other pigs do. Immediately after weaning, the piglets are fattened on animal feeds and vitamin-enriched food for several weeks. For the animal to be strong, to have muscular strength and resistant bones until it reaches the final weight, it is much important to make it follow a balanced diet.

Once the ham is started, it is recommended to consume it in less than 21 days so that it maintains all its flavor, quality and properties. In summer, it should be consumed in less than 16 days.
