Jamón Serrano is a passion in Spain, where every restaurant and tapas bar features Serrano hams ready to be sliced. The hams are cured for well over a year in the mountains of Spain, and have a complex flavor and mild saltiness that make jamón one of our favorite tapas. We slice imported ham extra thinly, so that you can enjoy the true taste of Serrano. And since we slice daily, our Peregrino jamón is the freshest you can get.
Our favorite way to enjoy Jamón Serrano is simple - on a warm platter with some good crusty bread and a glass of Spanish wine. A bocadillo sandwich is another classic Spanish treat – simply cut a fresh baguette in half, drizzle with olive oil and add sliced Serrano ham, perhaps with some slices of Manchego cheese. Once you get the taste for jamón, there are dozens of ways to enjoy it – wrapped around melon, diced and cooked with vegetables, sprinkled on fresh salads or added to paella or pasta, to name a few.
Over thousands of years the people of Spain developed the ideal method to preserve ham as a way to save meat for the coming winter. The hams are salted, and then hung in mountain curing rooms where they experience the changing seasons, losing up to 40% of their fat and developing deep, complex flavors. They continue to be cured using these same techniques, albeit with the benefits of modern technology.
We are proud to offer the freshest sliced jamón in the country. Instead of buying sliced meat in Spain, we bring the hams to our facilities and slice them weekly to ensure the freshest most flavorful Serrano you can buy. Our sliced Serrano ham is fully cured and ready to serve with no cooking necessary. In the original unopened package, these slices will stay fresh for weeks, if not longer.
