Product Description

Produced from black hooved Ibérico pigs that roam freely in Spanish oak woodlands, grazing on wild plants and herbs. During the autumn, the pigs double their weight feeding on acorns (bellota). This diet gives Ibérico Bellota shoulder its distinct flavour. The Ibérico shoulder is cured to perfection then hung in cellars to slowly mature for a minimum of 24 months. To appreciate the full flavour and aroma of this paleta, please remove the pack from the refrigerator and open 30 minutes before serving. Produced from free range pigs which roam on the dehesa of Spain.

Great Value

cheap compared to places like Brindisa. Still tasty. It would be nice if the Jamon was on offer as well as Paleta is fattier. Quite obviously this wasnt meant to be wrapped around things its in small thin slices! Thank you Spain for legs of acorn-fed iberian pigs!

Fell to bits

Just the thing, I thought, for wrapping around melon and asparagus for canapes, Disaster, every slice fell into tiny bits which were useless. I won't buy it again.

the best ham

This ham is divine. Must be served at room temperature to do it justice. It will melt in your mouth. Delicious.

very tasty but expensive

I bought this a few times. It is very tasty and we couldn't stop eating in both times. Prefer a little smaller package with a little less cost.
