Hamming It Up

Time Magazine

Until recently, developing a taste for jamón iberico made from acorn-fed black-footed pigs, wasn't easy. The USDA's ban on the Spanish delicacy was lifted only last year. And even though th first shipments of whole hams aren't due to arrive until 2008, importer La Tienda already has a list of 200 customers who have placed $199 deposits for hams that will cost upwards of $1,000 when they are finally delivered. For those without that much cash or patience, the first chorizo and sausages made from the meat of these precious pigs will be available early this year.Time Magazine article
