100% Iberico de Bellota, Pata Negra, No Preservatives
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
We remove the rind and the bone, cutting it into as many parts as you wish, and vacuum wrap each piece separately. We leave only the edible fat (ready to slice and serve).
We slice your entire ham and wrap the slices in 100-gram vacuum packs, separating them with plastic strips for easier serving.
We can slice the ham by machine (+£30.74) or with a knife (+£66.23).
Cárnicas Maldonado is one of the most renowned artisanal producers in Extremadura. Proof of this is that their hams have received several Premios Espiga awards.
All Maldonado cuts come with a quality certificate guaranteeing that they have passed the rigorous controls of origin (purebred Iberian pigs), diet (acorns) and processing (artisanal).
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!
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.
Mon préfère bel aspect extérieur , Jambon très bien coupe , très bon séchage pas trop sale , gras avec bon goût.
My preferred handsome appearance, Ham cut very well, very good drying not too dirty, greasy with good taste.
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.
I shall gladly reply to your request for opinion, and I've been very pleased with the purchase made. The ham, bought to enjoy it with my family during the holiday season is Very good and I appreciate the advice received from you. 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.
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!
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.
