About Paleta Iberica de Bellota Ham (shoulder) - Pre-SlicedA beautiful special edition 3 oz. package of the sumptously buttery and flavorful Spanish ham, Pata Negra Iberico de Bellota Ham. Considered by most the best and most premium ham in the world, this Spanish ham by 5J is produced in Jabugo, from Pata Negra pigs (black hoofed) reared on a natural diet of acorns, and allowed to roam freely in the Dehesa (thick forest). This diet plus a genetic privileged with more intramuscular fat, the pigs develop a meat that is richly marbled and deliciously flavor. The texture is smooth and tender, the flavor soft and full of fat (the healthy monosaturated kind) that dissolves in the palate. "Paleta" comes from the shoulder of the animal (as opposed to Jamon, which comes from the rear), typically a smaller, more hard-working muscle. Already cut into beautiful thin slices that you can enjoy with a slice of Manchego cheese, with some crusty bread.
