Hand Sliced Acorn-fed Iberico Shoulder from Jabugo
5J is made from the front limbs of Iberian pigs reared in the vast pastures of the Iberian Peninsula and fed on acorns during the Montanera fattening period. 5J Ham has a lingering aroma and an incomparable taste and bouquet. A black hoof and a fine hank. When sliced, it has a uniform color with myriad shiny streaks of accumulated fat.
Sliced and packaged.The slices are hand-carved, one by one, by expert Master Carvers. Thanks to its slow carving, which avoids any friction or warming, each product’s properties are maintained intact.
Please consume within a few days of opening sliced packages.
This allows slices of different parts of the same pig to be included in one single packet, a standard way of packaging this Iberian produce because only then can the consumer savour its different tastes.
It falls to the Maestro Jamonero to make the final selection for labelling, and to control the entire curing process. Their wisdom and devotion to this traditional art, which is transmitted from generation to generation, is key.
