The center piece of the Jamón Ibérico is one of the most flavorful portions from the famed Spanish ham. This piece is the happy medium between a whole ham and a packages of slices. Jamón Ibérico is best sliced thinly by hand or with an electric slicer and eaten at room temperature. You may also use pieces to add traditional Spanish flavor to dishes such as paella, cocidos, stews and more.
Jamón Ibérico is a treasure of Spanish cuisine, made from the unique breed of Spanish black Ibérico pigs only found in Spain. Jamón Ibérico differs from the famed Jamón Ibérico de Bellota only in that its diet is not entirely comprised of acorns. Deep red in color and marbled with flavorful fat, this pork is cured for over two years, transforming into an exquisitely flavorful piece of cured ham.
