Bellota Top quality: pig fed exclusively on acorns (more)
Curing
From 26 to 36 months.

Extremadura
Cut
Hind leg
Hog cuts: ham
Producer
Maldonado
Processing
Ham from purebred Iberian pigs reared on the open range in Extremadura on a diet of acorns during the fattening period, when they add at least 37% of their original weight. A purebred Iberian pig comes from parents of 100% Iberian bloodstock (not cross-bred) and accounts for less than 5% of the country's Iberian pigs.
In the delicate processing and curing phase, Cárnicas Maldonado keeps the travel time to the slaughterhouse at a minimum and lets the animals rest to prevent stress, which can alter Ph levels.
A minimum of salt is used for preservation to ensure first-rate flavour.
After eight months in natural drying houses the hams go to the cellars, where they will age for 18 months.
Gold Taste Award 2010 3 stars
Ingredients
Ham from bellota-grade purebred Iberian pigs, and salt. No preservatives.
Production
Purebreed Iberian pigs reared on the open range.
Taste note
Cutting reveals a rosy-to-purplish-red colour with glossy streaks of marbling fat in the flesh. Very slightly salty. Full-bodied, intense aromas, highly nuanced. Subtle, delicate flavour.
Outer appearance
A slender hind leg with a long, thin shank and black hoof. The outer side shows the typical V shape known as the Serrano cut, and is covered with a thick layer of glossy fat. The inner side shows traces of white or bluish-grey fungal growth, an unmistakable feature of slow ageing in the cellar.
Storing and expiry date
It depends on the format. See "Presentation".

Hams and shoulders are not packed in individual cartons. We place all the items you purchase in the smallest possible number of cartons to save on shipping costs. If you prefer having them packed in a different way, email us at info@ibergour.com indicating how many hams/shoulders you want, where you want them shipped and how you want them packed. We will calculate the additional cost of shipping according to your indications.

We ship the whole ham wrapped in grease-free paper and an outside cloth wrapper, all encased in a plastic bag for maximum hygiene. When you receive it, take it out of the bag and remove all the wrapping. You can keep it hung by the string at room temperature for up to 6 months before starting it. Once cutting has started, consume it in 1-2 months.

Meraviglioso!!Wonderful!!

Un prosciutto fantastico !! Forse la sola cosa da migliorare è il trasporto...il prosciutto arriva sempre un bel po ...sudato...ma probabilmente la responsabilità è del corriere! Ma la merce è favolosa !

A great ham! Maybe the only thing to improve is the transport ... the ham always comes a long way ... sweaty ... but it's probably the responsibility of the courier! But the goods are fabulous!

Sabor excelente, grasa abundanteExcellent taste, abundant adipose

Ya vamos por nuestro segundo Maldonados. Ambos han tenido un sabor excelente y distintivo, aunque la grasa nos pareció más densa que en el 5J. El primero fue equilibrado en su conjunto, pero con ligeramente demasiada grasa. El segundo es justo lo contrario, el jamón sale prácticamente desde el primer corte.

Since we are on our second Maldonados. Both have had excellent flavor and distinctive, although the fat seemed denser than in the 5J. The first was balanced as a whole, but with slightly too much fat. The second is just the opposite, the ham comes out almost from the first cut.

Dulce y con mucho saborSweet and flavorful

Contesto con mucho gusto a su solicitud de opinion, ya que he sido muy satisfecho de la compra hecha. El jamon, comprado para degustarlo con mi familia durante las fiestas navideñas es buenissimo y agradezco los consejos recibidos de Ustedes. Tenia todas las cualidades esperadas: dulce y con mucho sabor, grasa exquisita y carne firme pero tierna. No cabe duda que adquiriré otro jamon de su casa.

He had all the expected qualities: sweet and flavorful, fat and flesh firm but exquisite tenderness. No doubt that I will gain another ham home.

Recommandé par des amis BarcelonnaisRecommended by friends Barcelona

Un très bon jambon ibérique de bellota originaire d'Extremadura. La meilleure des régions pour l'élevage de porcs ibériques et la production de jambons. Recommandé par des amis Barcelonnais. C'est peu dire !

A very good ham Iberian Bellota native of Extremadura. The best areas for breeding pigs and Iberian ham production. Recommended by friends Barcelona. It is an understatement!

How to slice a spanish cured ham

The slicing of a ham with a knife is part of the genuine, quality Iberico ham tasting experience. It is a simple process too, with the right equipment. Nevertheless, certain safety measures should be observed.

  • Use a holder designed for this purpose, to keep the ham firmly in place.
  • When slicing, the hand not holding the knife should always be higher than the hand holding the knife.
  • Keep your body at a safe distance from the cutting area.
  • Slice slowly, without applying too much force.
