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 email@example.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 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.
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 shoulder and wrap the slices in 100-gram vacuum packs, separating them with plastic strips for easier serving.
We can slice the shoulder by machine (+£20.83) or with a knife (+£44.62).
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).
A superb paleta with a beautifully balanced flavour, as good as the Joselito. Highly recommended. I was also attracted by the absence of nitrites, though I do not know if these do you any harm.
Jambon tres goûteux avec du gras c'est vrai mais délicieux , translucide.
La chair est foncée avec un bon goût. Nous reviendrons.
very tasty ham with fat that is true but delicious translucent. The flesh is dark with a good taste. We will come back.
Hace años que compro paletillas de Maldonado y son excelentes. La ultima del pasado mes de noviembre! Sublime. Gran elaborador.
Years ago I buy blades of Maldonado and are excellent. The last of last November! Sublime. Great processor.
Un produit de trés bonne qualité avec une saveur très fine et très peu salé.
cher mais c'était un délice.
A product of very good quality with a very fine flavor and very little salt. Expensive but it was a delight.
Adquirí una paletilla maldonado bellota ya que en dos ocasiones había tenído la oportunidad de provar esta, y probar el jamón "maldonado", y lo cierto es que sin estar mala, tampoco le pondría un 10, no os dije nada porqué no era mala, ni estaba en mal estado, pero no llegaba a la calidad que esperaba de un Maldonado.
I purchased an acorn as maldonado shoulder twice had the opportunity to provide this, and try the ham "Maldonado", and the truth is that without being bad, neither would put a 10, does not say anything because I was not bad, or was in bad shape, but did not reach the quality expected from a Maldonado.
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.
