About our Jamón Serrano
Spanish ham (or Jamón) is perhaps the most delicious thing that can happen to the hind leg of a pig. Instead of cooking the ham in the oven or over the spit, Spanish ham is dry-cured. Once cleaned and trimmed, it’s packed in salt for at least two weeks to draw out all the moisture. Weeks later, the legs are removed and cleaned of salt, then suspended in the air to finish the curing process. This dry curing not only removes moisture but also intensifies the taste of the meat, resulting in a ham that tastes meatier than most.
The Spanish tradition of making ham dates back over 2000 years to the Roman empire. Pliny the Elder, naturalist and epicurean philosopher, praised jamón, saying ‘the flesh of these hogs has nearly fifty flavors!’ Considered a delicacy for centuries Spanish ham was once reserved exclusively for royalty. In fact, it wasn't until the 13th century that ham made its way to the layman's table. Thankfully, today everyone can enjoy the delightful tastes of authentic Serrano ham, and thanks to our quick shipping options, it’s never been easier!
