This product comes from raised pigs on a farm. The dark red meat is lightly marbled with fat, giving it a rich texture and an unmistakable flavor that will make your mouth water. Equally crucial for achieving this high-quality product is the drying and curing process. This completely natural process can last up to 24 months. During this time, the meat undergoes various physical and chemical changes.
In Spain, we called Ibérico shoulder ham- "paleta" obtained from the Iberian pigs' forelegs. Ham shoulder undergoes a similar curing process with the Ibérico ham (which is well-known as "jamón", from the back legs), but based on different cuts of pork they behave differently under the knife and on the tongue and has its distinct characteristics.
STORAGE & CARE
Unlike bone-in ham, a boneless Ibérico ham should be kept refrigerated because once the bone is removed, the curing process stops, and extra preservation is required. We recommend storing the boneless ham in an airtight container to prevent drying out
Any ham that is cut should be consumed immediately or wrapped in plastic paper to avoid contact with the air. We recommend that you cut only as much as you will consume.
Arrange the ham, slice by slice, on a flat plate with a few Squere Piquitos "Minutos" Spanish Crackers. Eating with your fingers is allowed. This is, in fact, the best way to eat ham. Or try it in one of the thousands of delicious Ibérico ham recipes.
