Montaraz Jamon Iberico de Bellota Bone-In Back Leg
Montaraz is a family owned and operated company in Spain, which uses traditional practices to produce top quality Iberico ham. The company uses 100% pure-breed acorn fed Iberico pigs that spend their lives wandering in a natural forest environment. The ham is aged more than 36 months with natural curing. 100% natural, Nitrate free. This bone-in back leg jamon has sweeter meat which is leaner and has less intense flavor than the shoulder cut (front leg). Slice by hand using a ham holder.
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.
Bone-in Iberian ham should be kept at 50 - 60 degrees F. Once opened and stored at proper temperature, T=the ham will last for several months.
