Every slice of 5J 100% Pure-bred Iberico jamon is hand-carved by Cinco Jotas Master Carvers. This exceptional acorn-fed shoulder of Iberico ham is cured for 18 - 36 months in Spain, then imported to the US and hand-carved. The unrivaled texture, lingering aroma and superb taste of this product are due to strict quality control to guarantee and safeguard the purity of this inimitable breed worldwide. Additionally, feeding Iberian pigs on a diet of acorns and aromatic herbs during the Montanera fattening period, combined with the exercise the pigs get while searching for food, ensures that they fatten at a slower rate and allows fat to accumulate even more between their muscle fibres. Cinco Jotas 100% Pure-Bred Iberian pigs are reared in free-range conditions in the pastures, with 5 acres of land for each pig.
Iberian Ham is a very healthy food, mainly due to the distinctive features of the breed from which it comes. Its oleic acid content is one of the most important factors. This component, which can also be found in olive oil, helps to reduce cholesterol levels and cardiovascular risk.
Sliced Iberian ham should be kept at 50 - 60 degrees F. Once opened, consume within 15 days. From date of purchase, shelf life is at least 12 months.
