- Ibérico ham from Spain
- Easy to separate slices
- Mountain cured for over 2 years in Spain
- Size - 3 ounces
Jamón Ibérico is the crown jewel of Spanish cuisine. These slices of delectable Spanish ham are packed with complexity: like an aged Manchego cheese or a glass of fine wine, each bite has many layers of flavor. Ibérico ham has very little salt, allowing the levels of taste to take center stage. Serve on a warm plate with good bread and a fine wine.
We slice imported Ibérico ham ourselves at La Tienda so that you can enjoy the freshest jamón possible. We take pride in making the extra effort for you to enjoy the authentic flavor of Spain.
Ibérico is the name of the famous breed of black pig indigenous to Spain. It is sometimes known as 'pata negra' or 'Jabugo', referring to a famous ham town. There are two levels of quality depending on how the animals are raised. This sliced ham is from Ibérico pigs that lived the normal livestock life, enjoying regular feed. The ultimate quality is called Jamón Ibérico de Bellota, which is made from free range Ibérico pigs that feast on acorns ('bellota') in the fall. It usually costs twice as much as normal Ibérico and is also available.
Ibérico ham is hung to cure for two to three years in the mountains of Spain. As the seasons change from the cold of winter through spring and summer, 40% of the fat melts away, bathing the ham in flavor. As the second year passes, the ham undergoes complex changes that produce incredible layers of flavor. The result is a tender and delicious ham, deep red in color with a very mild saltiness.
We slice Jamón Ibérico from whole hams here at La Tienda. We import the hams bone-in and de-bone them here, so they are as fresh as possible. Most other sliced jamón on the market is de-boned and sliced in Spain often months before they are purchased. We guarantee you will taste the difference!

"I cooked a 9-course tapas dinner for my girlfriend and her friends. I started with "Quesos y Embutidos." For the meats I bought jamon de Iberico and jamon de Iberico de Bellota from La Tienda. The quality of the meats was excellent and surpassed anything I had expected. I received it quickly and well-packaged. The taste, texture, aroma and the experience of eating the hams were to die for. I will always use La Tienda to get high-quality Spanish products. "

"Exactly like the delicious Jamon we enjoyed in Spain--flavorful, complex, and beautiful. It may be against tradition, but I prefer this to the Iberico de bellota, which has a stronger flavor. This is is gentle perfection."

"Didn't like the odd taste (sort of rancid) within the fat portion. The meat portion had a few fine salt crystals on each slice, perhaps that's the way it is supposed to be, anyway this part tasted good. Won't be reordering it because of funny taste of the fat."
