Deli Loaf Paleta Ibérica de Jabugo DOP
This paleta (pork shoulder) is de Bellota 100% Ibérica, the highest classification of acorn-fed, purebred Ibérico ham. It is DOP Jabugo, a region of Jamón Ibérico with great prestige. An intense aroma opens into sweet flavor with notes of toasted nuts and a touch of earthiness. It comes in a convenient deli loaf shape that makes slicing easy and reduces waste.
This pork shoulder comes from Huelva, a region that is home to some fantastic jamón due to its unique location and climatic conditions that are ideal for aging ham. Our producer is a cooperative that has been making ham for over 80 years. Their aging cellars are filled with special microflora which guarantee the unique aroma and taste of the paleta. They use traditional, slow methods of production. Their purebred Ibérico pigs feed exclusively on acorns and herbs that they forage in the dehesa (oak forest) during their last 3 months.
