Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is acknowledged as the world's finest ham. Free-range, acorn-fed Ibérico pork is cured for over two years in the mountains of Spain. The resulting ham has an intense red color and full, rich flavor unlike any ham we have ever tasted!
The end piece comes from a free-range, acorn fed Ibérico ham. Slice thinly and serve your jamón at room temperature a fine wine. You will see that it is truly 'bellota' by the way the mono-unsaturated fat melts in your mouth!
Jamón Ibérico de Bellota comes from Ibérico pigs that live a life wandering the 'dehesa' meadows of southwestern Spain, feasting on huge amounts of acorns ('bellotas' in Spanish). This ideal combination of diet and exercise, along with expert dry-curing, culminates in what many connoisseurs call the finest (and healthiest) ham in the world.
This end piece (from the shank end) is blanketed with a layer of flavorful golden fat that literally starts to melt at room temperature. This fat keeps the ham fresh and tender, and adds incredible flavor to traditional Spanish dishes once the ham is sliced. We discovered a great new combination when we added small slices of bellota fat to oysters on the half shell, then broiled them in the oven until the fat melted - incredible!
Our Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is expertly cured by Jamones Fermín in the beautiful medieval mountain village of La Alberca, where fresh mountain air filters through the ham drying rooms, creating the perfect conditions for an exceptional ham.

"It is great that La Tienda is now offering this middle-size portion of Jamon Iberico de Bellota. It is better to fresh slice, but I don't have the budget to buy a whole ham. A little more fat cap than I would have liked for this price, but I saved the trimmings to use for pan frying later."

"While my husband and I absolutely love Bellota, our budget didn't permit us to indulge as frequently as we'd like. After many months of being "jamon-less," we decided to take the plunge and order an end piece, ready to take a change. I am so glad that we ordered this! Now we don't have to spend a ton of money at our fancy tapa places here in NYC, and my hubby and I have very tasty date nights at home! We also ordered the serrano end piece and the cabrales spread and aged machengo too for the complete experience at only a fraction (!) of the cost. We save sooo much money by ordering this. If you are hooked on the "good stuff" Bellota like we are, buy this- you won't regret it! (and Happy "Date" night to you too!)"
