Iberico Ham Acorn-fed (Shoulder) - 100% Pure Iberico Breed 4-4.5 Kg | Spanish Jamon Pata Negra (Paleta 100% Iberica Pura de Bellota)
Curation time: 36 months. Origin: Extremadura - Spain. A vital part of the Mediterranean diet, it is sourced from the forelimb of 100% purebred iberico pigs, reared in mountain pastures, cared for and allowed to forage naturally for the acorns that make up their preferred diet and that give the meat its delicious, delicate flavour. It is characterized by its stylized form, black hoof and soft shiny fat, and its taste is exquisite and delicate on the palate. Small white-coloured "specks" or "crystals" can be seen when cut, which are a sign of a slow curing process and low salinity. Acorns are also rich in oleic acid, meaning the meat is richer in omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids and can even help reduce cholesterol.
