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 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 shoulder 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.

Etiqueta que certifica la calidad bellota de la denominación de origen Guijuelo

La vitola roja en la pezuña de estos jamones indica que han sido otorgados con la Calidad Bellota, la calidad más alta de la D.O. Guijuelo.

El marcaje de los cerdos y la certificación de la pureza de la raza porcina, la supervisión de la alimentación (a base de bellota), los controles en el sacrificio, de la salazón y de los tiempos de secado, son la mejor garantía de la calidad de estos jamones.

La tradición jamonera de Guijuelo se remonta al siglo XVI, siendo en la actualidad la región que más piezas pone a la venta de toda España.

La comarca de Guijuelo tiene una altitud media de 1.000 m. Los inviernos prolongados facilitan el secado natural de las piezas, mientras que los suaves veranos dan lugar a que se produzca el sudado, fenómeno de vital importancia ya que la grasa se infiltra entre las porciones musculares ocasionando el veteado típico. La humedad y la flora ambiental también son factores que intervienen en el proceso de curación del jamón, de 2 años de duración aproximadamente.

Confidavo in una qualità superiore...delusione!!I was confident in a superior quality ... disappointment !!

Ho acquistato questo jamon dopo aver assaggiato un Joselito e 5J, al fine di valutare la differenza di qualità tra i detti. Devo ammettere che, il prosciutto non era male anche se un po secco ma la differenza abissale sta sopratutto nella quasi assenza o meglio leggere presenza del sapore/aroma di ghianda che si apprezza dal primo boccone di un iberico al 100%.
Molto apprezzato invece, lo sconto del 15%, con cui viene proposto in vendita che, sicuramente invoglia all'acquisto e consente di variare la scelta e magari di trovare il jamon che soddisfa i propri gusti. Appunto per confermare quanto detto e laddove venisse praticato una sconto corposo sarei disposto a ripetere la prova con altro jamon al 75%, in mancanza e senza sconti tornerò a deliziarmi con quelli che sin'ora sono indiscutibilmente i migliori...Joselito e 5J!!

I bought this jamon after tasting a Joselito and 5J, in order to evaluate the difference in quality between the sayings. I must admit that the ham was not bad even if a little dry but the abysmal difference lies above all in the almost absence or rather slight presence of the acorn flavor / aroma that can be appreciated from the first bite of a 100% Iberian. The 15% discount, on the other hand, is much appreciated, with which it is offered for sale, which certainly encourages you to buy and allows you to vary your choice and perhaps find the jamon that satisfies your tastes. Just to confirm what has been said and where a substantial discount is given, I would be willing to repeat the test with another 75% jamon, failing that and without discounts I will return to delight myself with those that so far are unquestionably the best ... Joselito and 5J! !

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.

See a complete step by step guide, with images.
