The Iberian shoulder is a very good option if you are looking for a smaller size than ham (jamón) but with the same delicious flavor of Iberian ham (jamón ibérico). If you want to buy a quality Iberian shoulder at a more affordable price than acorn-fed ham (Jamón de Bellota), your best option is to buy the Paleta de Campo Ibérica. In Enrique Tomás we catalog it with 4 premium stars and we differentiate it from its vitola and its bottle-green flange. To buy Iberian shoulder in an easy, safe and fast way, you can do it through our online store.
You will be able to identify this shoulder with the characteristic Enrique Tomás sign and its four stars, together with the green label on each piece. Discover it, the quality-price ratio will surprise you!
The paleta (shoulder) is a highly valued format in Spain, especially in areas such as Catalonia and the Mediterranean area. If you like ham with an intense and rather cured flavor, you will love the paleta. Another very important aspect to take into account is how many of you are at home. For example, a ham would be too big if there are only two of you, you would have to eat every day and have guests very often. The shoulder, on the other hand, would be enough. Another interesting variant is the price, the fact that it is smaller in size also makes the price more affordable than the ham/jamón.
Both the ham and the shoulder are cut in the same way; you just have to take into account some different points that are determined by the anatomy of the piece itself. The way to cut is always using the appropriate utensils in both cases: a ham holder, a sharp knife and a sharpener, and some basic knowledge about safety and how to cut before starting.
The cut is always horizontal and following our advice, you will do it great.
