MrJamon.com has as one of its main goals to publicize the Iberian products of Extremadura. It is therefore essential to introduce the new categories that were born from the new Iberico Standard, in order to ensure the prevalence of authentic Pata Negra ham.

The new Iberian ham Standard.

We would like to clarify these terms. There are three parameters that differentiate Iberian hams with others: race or pig genetics, nutrition, especially the last two months and finally the curing method and time. These three factors generate the quality of the product and consequently its price.

Nowadays there are only three different kinds of ham: Iberico ham, Acorn Fed Iberico ham and Serrano Ham. Inside the Iberico category, we must also distinguish between 100% Iberico animals from purebred Iberico, and Iberico, allowing up to 50% crossing other breeds with Iberian.

The Iberian pigs feeding time in the pasture field will be a minimum of 60 days. The Iberian pigs are fed with fodder in the farm, same as their cousins the white pigs, but with bigger surface of pasture than these ones. Only Acorn Fed Iberico pigs pasture throughout their whole lives in the fields and forests.

On the outside of the ham the fat covering the surface must be checked out. If we take a closer look we will see that there is an obvious difference. In the Serrano ham it is hard and white and in the Iberico ham, acorn fed and non-acorn fed, is softer and drips, and frequently the "llorones" are place to collect the oil that emerges. This typical fluidity of the fat that infiltrates between the muscle fibers is particularly relevant for the quality of Iberian hams.

On that same side of the ham, appears a number marked on fire or ink that indicates the week and year of the beginning of its curing period. It is a very detreminat factor, especially for the serrano ham, as it marks its category: cellar, 9 months; reserve 12 months; and grand reserve 15 months

In the Iberians, in the cebo are usually 20 to 24 months and in the acorn fed 30-36 months, depending on the weight. Such a long period is essential for the aroma of the ham, acquiring a nuance that every palate will be able to tell right away. Similarly, it is important to cut the ham properly to taste its full flavor.

This infographic shows you the three kinds of iberian ham. Iberico, Acorn Fed Iberico and 100% Black Iberian Acorn Fed Iberico, this last one is well known as Pata Negra Ham.

MrJamon.com only sell those hams from pigs that have been bred in the fields and forests of Extremadura and not on factory farms:
