Types and qualities of Ham
The first thing to understand is that Spanish ham is of two kinds:
Non-Iberian ham or Gran Reserva
Gran Reserva or Gran Reserva ham from white pigs. The second important thing is to know that the white pig is raised anywhere on the planet. It is raised only on the farm and with feed. It is the simplest of all types of ham and also the cheapest.
The Iberian ham comes from the Iberian pig whose mother is always 100% Iberian. And it breeds only in the Peninsula of the same name. It is the only animal in the world that has the ability to infiltrate fat into muscle. This characteristic is what makes its ham so special and juicy.
In turn, Iberian ham has different qualities and tastes, depending on the diet and the percentage of the animal's Iberian breed, which can be 50%, 75% or 100%. And of course the prices will be related to the characteristics of the animal but above all with the healing process. An Iberian bait ham whose animal has been raised only on the farm with feed and has been cured in 24 months cannot cost the same as an acorn-fed Iberian ham that has been raised in the wild and whose ham has taken more than three years to cure. , with the care and patience of the expert.
The different Ibericos are:
Iberian bait Ham
This ham comes from an Iberian pig fed on a farm with feed and cereals. Our Iberico de Cebo is cured for a minimum of 24 months if it is ham or 18 months if it is shoulder.
Acorn-fed Iberian ham
This ham comes from an Iberian pig whose mother is 100% Iberian and has also been free-fed on acorns and wild fruits for the last 4 months of its life, from November to March. (See Montanera)
Acorn-fed 100% Iberian Ham - Pata Negra
This ham comes from the purebred Iberian pig, that is, in this case the father and mother are Iberian. And he has also eaten acorns and wild fruits during the last 4 months of his life.
Our flavors and formats of Iberian Ham
As in any good dish, if the ingredients are very important, even more so is the hand of the chef who is going to give them shape and taste. Exactly the same thing happens when making ham. The Iberian pig is born the same in all parts of the Spanish geography, but each producing region will give it its special touch thanks to several elements: the climate, the diet and, above all, the manufacturing and curing process implemented by the expert "cook". as we call it at Enrique Tomás. Based on these elements we will have a classification of tastes that we detail below.
