Jamon Iberico "Seleccion 24"


This is our 24 month cured Iberico ham which although an Iberico pig has not had the final free-range experience gourging on acorns to give that little extra taste . This is still a deep and rich full flavoured ham but with a little less absorbed fat which is usually gained from the Bellota pigs.

A great way to try the pata negra experience without the full cost.

Guiljuelo is in the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos and Béjar which has long been associated with Iberico production and accounts for 70% of national ham output.
The region is over 1000 metres high and experiences long hard winters and short summers which leads to the prized characteristics gained during curing.

Torreon ibericos are revered master curers from Guiljuelo, Salamanca.


Storage and cutting

When you receive your Jamon we recommend removing from the vacuum packaging and giving a quick wipe down with a dry cloth and then storing in a dry, cool and preferably dark area and covered in a cloth or towel for protection. You can keep it like this for around a month but obviously these are not the perfect storage conditions normally associated with the bodegas they are usually stored in.

When you are ready to start cutting firstly place in the Jamonero ham stand and follow the instructions included with your delivery.

Your jamon should last 4-6 weeks as long as you cut frequently and follow the storage instructions included.

Added benefits

It's not often that something so delicious can also have health benefits but in this case due to the high Oleic acid content of iberico pigs it has been proven to help reduce bad cholesterol (LDL and increase good cholesterol (HDL) as well as have a rich vein of vitamins and minerals so as long as you eat in moderation you can feel no guilt what so ever!
