This leg of ham has reached the highest possible category in Spain to be called Puro de Bellota. It means that not only is it produced from 100% purebred Ibérico pork but also the pig feasted on acorns for the last 3-4 months of its life.
Our producer in El Valle de Los Padroches in Córdoba has 400,000 hectares of Holm oak forest. These oak trees produce acorns considered to be the sweetest in Spain. It is here they allow their 100% purebred Ibérico pigs to roam freely. During autumn and winter, the pigs feed on acorns, which contributes to the meat’s juicy flavor and marbled appearance. The meat is dried and cured for 90 days to develop its unparalleled flavor.
The flavor of this minimum 2-1/2 year aged ham is unparalleled. Sweet and savory with fat that just melts in your mouth – we challenge you to find anything else even half as good. Boneless 1/10#, Bone In 1/16#
