Iberico Ham Shoulder is the perfect choice for those looking for an intense and elegant flavoured Ham to share with loved ones. Ham Shoulders are the animal’s front legs (Jamon is the back leg) and are renowned for their delicate yet rich nutty flavours. This particular ham shoulder is sourced from Teruel, Spain.
Teruel’s fields supply the grains and acorn which are carefully collected and selected to prepare the ideal feed for the animals using only noble grains. At the farms, the entire livestock process is closely monitored, from genetic selection, mother farms, raising, and fattening. This fully-traceable process guarantees the highest levels of uniformity. The herd is developed in accordance with the standards and certification of the regulatory board of the Certification of Origin Hams and Shoulders of Teruel. They also hold the AENOR certification in animal welfare, which recognizes the integration of animal comfort in the food chain and offers maximum information and transparency to the consumer. Finally, the drying installations are located in areas that provide unique conditions (elevation 1200 m) ensuring optimum oxygen levels for the drying of our products. Quality Control and processes guarantee the final product.
The whole leg is a fantastic centrepiece or gift for a friend or loved one. It is a special occasion opening one of the finest hams in the world. It starts with the elegant packaging. The vacuum-packed ham is presented on a black fabric bag with a golden net. This red label Ham Shoulder is produced from a pig that is 50% Iberico and 50% Duroc and exclusively acorn feed. It brings all the flavour of bellota ham to your home, with a smart presentation that makes it a perfect gift. A true favourite in Spanish kitchens!
If the packaging lost the vacuum, it´s natural that white mould grows on the surface of the ham. This can be easily cleaned with paper towels impregnated in vegetable oil (any vegetable oil will do, as it won´t affect to the ham´s taste).
