- Size - 3 oz
The name Cinco Jotas is synonymous with the finest acorn-fed, free range cured hams and shoulders in the world! Aged for over two years, this Ibérico de Bellota paleta literally melts in your mouth, releasing a symphony of flavors. Ham masters from Jabugo cut each slice by hand with a special jamonero knife for the most authentic sliced Ibérico de Bellota in the world.
Serve these delectable slices on a warm plate with a great bottle of wine to best experience this treasure of Spanish cuisine! Each slice will have a deep maroon color and an enticing aroma that can only be experienced with cured Ibérico meats.
Paleta Ibérico de Bellota dry-cured shoulders are marbled with beneficial fats that bring a rich intensity of flavor, making this the finest of cured meats. Paletas are smaller than the typical jamón and more marbled. Many people prefer paletas, claiming they have a richer flavor than the larger hams.
Ibérico pigs are an ancient breed, only found in Spain. Cinco Jotas raises its own herd of 100% purebred Ibérico pigs on the oak-tree studded rangelands of western Spain. There they live in family groups, foraging for food and feasting on sweet bellotas, or acorns. During the montanera season, when the acorns are thick on the ground, they can gain ten pounds a day!
This wonderful diet, and all that exercise, means that the meat is marbled with beneficial acorn flavored fats. During the curing process, this fat is transformed into a monounsaturated oil, much like extra virgin olive oil. In fact, there is evidence that eating Ibérico de Bellota will actually lower your cholesterol!

Henry - Fayetteville, NC May 2016
"I've already tasted this ham in spain, same brand, and I loved it. Which is why i bought it from La Tienda. I was affraid it wouldn't taste the same, with the long distance shipment and all, but it came super fresh. They pack their packages in a especial way to ensure freshness and authenticity of the products! It's the second time that I order in la Tienda and will probably reorder soon!"

Yolanda - Valley Cottage, NY March 2015
"Ok, wow. I ordered this obviously thinking that it would be good, but not this good. I have had Pata Negra de Bellota jamon before, but the Cinco Jotas product is on a different level. Just had it with bread and a Rioja with some friends over. It melts in your mouth, and the depth of flavor is incredible. As you eat it, the flavor just keeps evolving. Buy this; you won't be disappointed."
