Regarded as one of the finest Spanish hams, Cinco Jotas Acorn fed, Black Iberian Ham is world renowned for their attention to quality in the production of their goods. Having been favored by the Spanish royal family in the past as their ham of choice, at Pata Negra Jamoneria we are proud to carry Cinco Jotas, a prestigious brand that any ham connoisseur can now delight in. Cinco Jotas’ team, of veterinarians and farm specialists, monitor and care for the 100%, purebred, Iberian pigs and their indigenous habitat, the Jabugo Dehesa woodlands, in the southern peninsula of Spain. The meat of the Black Iberian ham is delicate in texture and flavor, slightly salty and nutty, due to the exquisite marbling of fat. Kept on a strict exercise regiment and a diet of acorns (native to the area), the meat is rich in Omega-9 oleic acid, great for cardiovascular health, and is recommended for a healthy Mediterranean diet.
The best way to enjoy Acorn fed, Black Iberian ham is by having Master in Charcuterie, Chef Felipe Perez, slice the Black Iberian ham by hand using a carving knife. In this way, it allows you to enjoy all parts of the Black Iberian ham in an individually wrapped and vacuum-sealed package for continued freshness. One may also order the pre-packaged, Black Iberian ham sliced by a machine. Whether hand sliced with a knife or machine-cut, Cinco Jotas’ Acorn fed, Black Iberian ham is simply divine.
