Iberico Spanish ham is an exclusive and natural product made by the finest craft traditions.
This Iberico Spanish ham by Covap comes from south Spain and it's a pure Iberico ham. This means that the meat used to produce it is truly unique. It's meat of Iberico breed. These are animals that are aged between 16-18 months and live freely at least for 60 days in La Dehesa Spain.
The pigs spend that time outdoors, in a special ecosystem where they are able to eat the natural food that La Dehesa provides, like acorn or grass.
The difference between Iberico Ham and Iberico de Bellota Ham is that Bellota Ham comes from exclusively acorn diet during the last 4 months.
Iberico pigs are carefully chosen when they weigh around 352 Lb. The best meat for the best Spanish ham! Its aroma is the consequence of different factors, like the humidity, microclimate, and altitude. A pigs' natural diet! The taste is truly something unforgettable.
Cutting of the ham: remove the layer of fat from the top and the sides of the jamón/ham until the meat is exposed. Trim the fat as you slice. Cut small, very thin slices, including some of the fat which holds much of the flavor. Remember to slice downwards with the knife.
