Jamones Y Embutidos bring you a very special product from the medieval mountain town of La Alberca.
This Jamón Serrano comes from animals that were born in the region of Salamanca in western Spain. They were raised humanely in the mountains, and spent much of their lives outdoors on Spanish pasture land.
Jamón Serrano literally means 'mountain ham' in Spanish and, of all the hams available in the U.S., these are the most authentic from this standpoint. Each ham is hung to dry in the cool, clean mountain air where it ages for over a year.
The curing process which results in the Fermín Jamón Serrano is completely traditional. The hams are cured in drying rooms with open screened windows, caressed by mountain air as it wafts through the area where the hams are hung.
Most other hams available today are hung in temperature-controlled curing facilities, where the conditions are artificially engineered to reproduce the mountain climate. Not so with Fermín. These hams are cured by the change of the seasons and the action of salt over time.
Pork, salt, seasoning (Sugar, Trisodium Citrate, Potassium Nitrate, Sodium Nitrite). USDA inspected.

"Boy how I missed this taste before finding La Tienda! Lean, dry, very tasty, perfect for just eating in sandwiches or cooking various dishes, worth every penny."

"Away from skin side is too dry and too chewy to eat regardless of how tin slice is. Middle and part next to the skin are good. "
