We expertly cut this mouthwatering ham in our own USDA-inspected facility, leaving enough treasured meat on the bone to add tasty slices of jamón to your dishes. The bone and fat will add incredible depth to your slow cooked dishes, broth and stock. The unmatched flavor of Jamón Ibérico de Bellota will transfer to your cuisine, elevating each tasting experience.
Jamón Ibérico de Bellota hams come from an ancient breed of pig, cerdo Ibérico, which has been roaming the woodland meadows of western Spain feeding on acorns for thousands of years. The pigs fill themselves with sweet 'bellota' acorns, putting on at least two pounds of weight each day. Each ham hangs for over two years in the clean mountain air, losing over 40% of its weight as much of the fat melts away and the complex flavor and unrivaled texture develop.
Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is marbled with golden, acorn-flavored fat from the pig’s diet that is rich in unsaturated healthy oils. This marbled fat melts at room temperature, revealing an array of complex, delicate flavors with very little saltiness that will add depth to your Spanish-inspired cuisine.
