Iberico Paleta, 70g
Black Label Jamon Iberico de Bellota, this is the highest grade and most prized of all Spanish Hams. Only pigs with the best genetic makeup are selected for Cinco Jotas. Mother and father are both 100% Ibérico pigs. They are best able to infiltrate the fats, and are the most athletic so they can take full advantage of the 'montanera' season (November – March) when acorns fall from the trees.
This cut is from the shoulder which offers a slightly firmer texture and aromatic but is cured and treated in exactly the same way as the famous legs
Best removed from the fridge 20-30 minutes before serving to allow the fats to soften and to come up to room temperature. Open the packets helps to enable this too. Jamon of this quality requires little else to enjoy at it's finest.
Iberico 'Paleta' Jamon, cut from the cured shoulder of Iberico pigs. Keep Chilled.
