Jamón Ibérico, the incredible cured ham made from free-range, acorn-fed pork, is the ultimate of its kind. Cured for over two years this delectable ham glistens with beneficial fats that are the key to its profound, complex flavor.
Beher is well known as a superior brand of Ibérico ham.
Beher use only 100% genetically pure bred Ibérico pigs that live their entire lives roaming the countryside of Spain. Other companies will cross breed Ibérico pigs with other breeds to increase the litter size and raw meat production. Beher prefer to use only 100% pure Ibérico even though it’s more expensive.
The hams come from an ancient breed of pig, Cerdo Ibérico, which has been roaming the woodland meadows of western Spain feeding on acorns for thousands of years. Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is the pride of Spain, and Spaniards consume the vast majority of the limited number of hams produced in their own country.
Each fall, a traditional group of breeders sets aside a select group of young pigs, allowing them to roam the woodlands. There they feast upon acorns which are falling in bundance from the holm oak and cork trees. They feast on these ‘bellotas’ (Spanish for acorn) themselves, putting on at least two pounds of weight each day!
These genetically unique animals produce Jamón Ibérico de Bellota hams that are marbled with rich golden fat infused with the flavor of the sweet bellota acorns. Remarkably, a good portion of which is mono-unsaturated, similar to healthy olive oil. Sliced paper-thin, it glistens at room temperature and provides an inimitable rich nutty flavor and tender texture.
