5J shoulder cut from purebred Iberian pigs reared on the open range in Spanish woodlands on a diet of acorns during the fattening period. Processing involves cooling and cutting into a media luna ("half moon") shape, trimming off the outer fat, salting, rinsing, balancing, drying and cellar-ageing.
Shoulder cut ham from bellota-grade purebred Iberian pigs, sea salt, antioxidant E-301, acidity regulator E-331(iii) and preservative E-252. Gluten free.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Once the shoulder has been started, mold may appear around the carving area if nothing has been consumed for several days, especially in damp climates or environments. This is normal; all you need to do is discard the first slice to eliminate the mold.

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.
