Bellota 50% Ibérico Ham - Salamanca

8.80 Kilo
Origin: Salamanca
In November, when it's cold in the meadows and the acorn falls naturally, the farm’s foreman takes the best Iberian pigs from his farm to graze for four months. In that period, known as the Montanera the pigs will gain 50% of their weight in freedom, walking, drinking in the ponds, eating grass, red fruits... and a lot of acorns. The acorn is a very rough, oily, tasty nut that will impregnate the pork meat of this peculiar flavour. Given that the Iberian pig also infiltrates fat naturally into the muscle, the sum of this infiltration and the taste of acorn, during the long and quiet 36 months of the dry-curing process, this jamón will gradually become impregnated with those delicious aromas that in Guijuelo, Salamanca have been delighting us for years. If you are looking for a Jamón with class, elegant, soft, friendly, delicious this is undoubtedly your choice.
