Our friends at Jamones Fermín bring you a very special ham from the medieval mountain town of La Alberca. Cured for almost two years, it has a delicious, full flavor and mild saltiness.
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 18 to 20 months.
The result is beautifully cured jamón with a complex flavor and a mild saltiness. Mount this ham in a special holder and it will be a centerpiece of any gathering. Serve this quality Serrano to your guests and they will rave about each delicious slice.
The curing process of 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. They experience the changes of the seasons, losing about 40% of their weight as the pork transforms into a complex, delicious ham.
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.
No cooking required.
Pork, salt, seasoning (Sugar, Trisodium Citrate, Potassium Nitrate, Sodium Nitrite). USDA inspected.

"Felices con nuestro Serrano!!!"

"I am from Malaga, Spain and have eaten SPANISH Ham many times. Lived in Florida the last few years and purchased SPANISH hams the last few Christmas. This has not been very good. It is too salty and I understand there should be more salty taste on one side, but this one has been extremely salty flavor all over. Would not recommend it. In Spain this Ham would not be worth more than $60. Had better experience with Navidul or Campofrio hams in the past. "

Diego - Lethbridge, Alberta - Aug 13, 2012
"I ordered the ham late January and it arrived on time and was well packaged. I also ordered the stand (a must for utility and presentation!). We cut into the ham the next day and it was fantastic as expected. No issues whatsoever. The flavor is magnificant and looks fantastic on counter in our kitchen. Great texture, great flavor and well worth the money. Treat yourself to one of these and you will ask yourself why you have not ordered one before. "
