Perfekter Schinken von professionellem ShopPerfect ham from professional shop

Ich habe bereits mehrfach Pata Negra Schinken bestellt. Den Cinco Jotas von Ibergour kann ich nur empfehlen. Ich habe mir ein ca. 2Kg Stück halbieren lassen. Der Schinken kam vakumiert in je 1KG Stücken+ dem vakumierten Knochenstück bei uns an.
Der Pata Negra aus Jabugo zergeht im Mund.
Die Kommunikation mit dem Shop läuft sehr gut, geantwortet wird innerhalb kürzester Zeit auf deutsch.Preis/Leistung stimmen bei Ibergour.

I have ordered Pata Negra ham several times. I can only recommend the Cinco Jotas from Ibergour. I had an approx. 2kg piece cut in half. The ham arrived vacuum-packed in 1KG pieces each of the vacuum-packed piece of bone. The Pata Negra from Jabugo melts in your mouth. Communication with the shop is going very well, replies are received in German within a very short time. Price/performance is right at Ibergour.

Buen productoGood product

Buen producto. Sabor y olor adecuados. Por poner un "pero", la siguiente la pediré sin cortar, aunque la presentación es muy buena, se pierde algo de sabor.
Volveré a comprarla deshuesada y en dos trozos. Al cortarla cuando se consume, teniendo envasadora de vacío, se conserva perfectamente.

Good product. Appropriate taste and smell. To put a "but", I will order the next one without cutting it, although the presentation is very good, some flavor is lost. I will buy it again boneless and in two pieces. By cutting it when consumed, having a vacuum packaging machine, it is perfectly preserved.

Spalla 5J CincosShoulder 5J Cincos

Spalla davvero gustosa. .e l'aspettavo un pochino più magra, ma anche il grasso è davvero profumatissimo. Che dire, una spalla gdibilissima fino alla fine e mai secca. Ottimo prodotto.

Really tasty shoulder. .and I was expecting it to be a little thinner, but the fat is also really fragrant. What can I say, a very enjoyable shoulder to the end and never dry. Great product.

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.
