Cela fait 2 fois que j’achète une épaule 5 jotas
La 1er fois en 2020 et la deuxième fois pour Noël 2023.
Franchement l’épaule est toujours aussi bonne avec beaucoup de saveur.

I've bought a 5 jota shoulder twice now. The first time in 2020 and the second time for Christmas 2023. Frankly, the shoulder is still just as good with lots of flavor.

Fleisch kaum fettdurchzogen, trockenMeat barely streaked with fat, dry

Wir kaufen schon lange bei Ihnen und werden es auch weiter tun, der letzte Vorderschinken, war aber nicht so gut.
Zu trocken, salzig und eben kein Fett eingelagert, wie ein gutes iberisches Schwein haben sollte. 5J sollte sich so etwas nicht leisten.

We've been buying from you for a long time and will continue to do so, but the last shoulder of ham wasn't that good. Too dry, salty and no fat stored, like a good Iberian pig should have. 5J shouldn't have to do something like that.

Calitate buna dar cam multa grasime. Practic am ramas cu 1100 g din cele 5.75 kg, Cred ca este mai convenabil sa cumperi jambon decat pulpa din fata

Good quality but a bit too fat. Basically, I have 1100 g left from the 5.75 kg, I think it is more convenient to buy ham than the front leg

How to slice a spanish cured shoulder

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 shoulder 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.
