Shoulder cuts are smaller than hind leg hams. They contain less meat, but are juicier and more marbled with fat.
We also have a wide selection of accessories to help with cutting: ham holders, knives, sharpeners and clamps. A good ham holder makes it easier to cut hams, and a well-sharpened knife allows you to cut thin slices while reducing the risk of cutting yourself. That may sound like a contradiction, but as less force needs to be applied, the knife will only move a very short distance if it slips out of your hands.
The finest quality ham comes from Iberian breed pigs, especially those that are born and live in the exceptional habitat constituted by the dehesa of Extremadura, with large tracts of land for grazing, and a singular diet during the finishing period, or montanera, of acorns and grasses.
In this environment, the muscle tissue of the Iberian pig becomes marbled with fat, giving the meat the superlative quality that is seen in Iberico hams and traditional pork products.
The shape of these hams is elongated, and the leg above the hoof is long and slender. Colour ranges from rosy to purplish red. The hams have aromas that are intense, pleasing and highly nuanced; their flavor is very delicate, with the faintest hint of saltiness. The flesh is smooth, and the fat is lustrous and soft to the touch.
The shape is elongated; the leg above the hoof is long and slender.
Label (coloured band)
All of the "bellota quality" Iberico hams have a red (cross breeds) or black (purebred) band around the leg, just above the hoof. This band is green for "cebo de campo quality" hams, and white for "cebo quality".
The colour of the flesh is very characteristic, ranging from rosy to purplish red.
The aroma is intense, pleasing and highly nuanced.
Very delicate, with the faintest hint of saltiness. Exquisite.
