Wondering between Jamon and Paleta? Let us englighten you. It's a matter of cut - Jamon is the hind leg, typically larger with a more rounded shape (easier to cut). "Paleta" is the shoulder cut, longer and thinner, usually a few pounds smaller. However the flavor is identical, so we recommend we make your decision based on the size ham that you need. Made from "Pata Negra" (black hoofed) pigs that are reared on a natural diet of acorns and grasses (Bellota hams are reared exlusively on acorns), Iberico pigs develop a meat that is high in fat and richly flavored. The texture is smooth and tender, the flavor soft and full of fat (the healthy monosaturated kind) that dissolves in the palate. Found only in Spain, and only exported to the United States by Embutidos Fermin. Sold bone in, whole leg, varies between 12 to 21 lbs in weight.PRODUCT PRICING NOTE: this product is a variable weight item, and you will receive an item within the range noted above.
