Jamón Iberico


 

Jamón Iberico de Bellota: The best of Spanish cuisine

Jamón Iberico de Bellota is one of Spain’s most famous delicacies.  Its unique taste and aroma is created by the sweet acorns devoured by the pure-bred iberian pigs (“bellota” means acorn), as well as the curing process.  By grazing on the acorns of oak trees, the meat obtains a rich, creamy texture that melts in your mouth.Jamon various sizes wide

Legs of Jamon are cured for two to three years and it is this aging process that helps transform the meat and bring out the amazing flavours.  The famous umami  flavour can be found in abundance in Jamon Iberico, which is part of its appeal.

The traditional methods of production, along with the standards around the “Denomination of Origin” of Iberico pigs are so strict that the jamon deserves its place alongside caviar, truffles and champagne in the upper echelons of cuisine.
