We will make buying Iberian ham give you the same pleasure as eating it… or at least we will try!
When it comes to making a gift we always want the best, but if the gift in question is jamón, which is the best? In Enrique Tomás we have a saying that the best is not the most expensive, but the one you like the most. Faithful to our principles, our first recommendation is that you give what you like the most, let yourself be carried away by your instinct and share the flavour you are most passionate about. If, on the other hand, you don’t know much about it or you like them all, here are some details to keep in mind when buying jamón at Christmas:
Ham is one of the star products of the Spanish gastronomy, a... More or ham shoulder? There are those who prefer one more than the other, but what you should know is that both are of the highest quality. In terms of their differences, the size, taste and ease of cutting stand out. The ham is bigger than the ham shoulder, while the latter tends to have a more intense flavor because the meat is closer to the bone. As for the ease of cutting, the ham is easier to handle because of the greater amount of meat and less bone.
The jamón has a main division that depends on the breed of pig which comes from. We have the Serrano Ham, or not Iberian, from white pigs and the famous Iberian Ham, from pigs of the Iberian breed with different percentages of purity. Within the Iberian we have several qualities:
Each of these qualities can be identified with colored flanges that guarantee their quality and where the food that has received the pig in question is specified and the percentage of purity of breed. Which is the best? We musta insist again, the one you like the most!
For us, Jamón de Bellota is the best, the ability of Iberian pigs to infiltrate intramuscular fat along with feeding acorns gives their meat an incomparable flavor and texture. Without a doubt, a product of the highest quality, symbol of Spanish gastronomy.
The choice of format depends on who the gift is aimed at, as it will never be the same to entertain someone with a whole piece of ham than with a delicate and elegant tasting pack, for example.
