Category: Tag:

Acorn Fed Ibérico Bone-In Paleta Shoulder Ham from Campo Grande is a true delicacy for the discerning food lover. Fondly called “paletilla” by locals, the Paleta is smaller than hind-leg hams and is cured closer to the bone, resulting in a distinguished robust nuttiness that lingers on the tongue. This exquisite ham is a testament to the rich flavors and heritage of Spain’s culinary tradition.

The Ibérico pigs, from which this shoulder ham is derived, are a unique ancient breed of free-range animals that spend their early lives roaming “La Dehesa.” This idyllic environment allows them to graze on grubs, grasses, and natural shrubs, giving the meat its distinctive taste and texture. “La Dehesa” is the Spanish “Oak Savanna,” a protected ecosystem where the pigs, oak trees, and soil coexist and prosper. During the winter season, Ibérico pigs can consume up to 40% of their weight in acorns, contributing to the rich and flavorful profile of the meat.

To preserve the authentic flavors and qualities of the Ibérico Shoulder Ham, it is salt-cured, a traditional method that has been used for centuries. The hams are carefully preserved in salt and then aged in a temperature-controlled environment for 36 months. This meticulous aging process allows the flavors to develop and deepen, resulting in a complex and satisfying taste experience.

One of the standout features of the Acorn Fed Ibérico Bone-In Paleta Shoulder Ham is its single-origin traceability. This means that every piece of paleta can be traced back to the farm and rancher, ensuring transparency and quality control throughout the entire production process. This attention to detail guarantees that you are enjoying a truly authentic and premium product.
