Jamon (gammon) & Paleta (shoulder ham)

The main difference between paleta (shoulder ham) and jamon (gammon) is in weight and ripening time. Furthermore, these two products come from the same Iberico pig and were raised on the same diet and in the same living conditions. The ripening/drying time of the Jamon is longer than that of a Paleta. A Jamon weighs between 7.5 and 9.5 kg and the Paleta between 4 and 6 kg. Due to the Paleta's smaller size, the meat is closer to the bone. As a result, the Iberico shoulder ham is known for a more intense and riper taste.

Our Jamones normally weigh between 8 and 8.5 kg and a Paleta usually weighs between 5 and 5.5 kg. If you only eat a plate of Iberico ham with 1 or 2 people every now and then, it is advisable to choose a Paleta. To preserve the best quality, you want to use up the Jamon or Paleta within 3 weeks after cutting.

Pata Negra: First-class Iberico ham

A bite of the very best Pata Negra immediately explains why this is such a special Spanish delicacy. It has an intense nutty flavor and a delicate soft texture; this Iberian ham melts in your mouth. The fat of the Pata Negra ham has a soft milky texture that contrasts perfectly with the rich meat. This texture and aroma are obtained from the diet and long careful rearing of the Iberian pig. The craft of Iberian ham is steeped in history, tradition and love; you can really taste it.

Pata Negra" literally means "black leg" and refers to the black hoof of the black Iberian pig. The term often incorrectly refers to all Iberico ham, but it is more correct to refer to the Black Label or Bellota Ham. This is known as the finest of them all.The completely acorn-fed diet and exercise make the Pata Negra ham a cured meat above the rest.

We also use the term 'Pata Negra' when it comes to full breed 100% Iberico, where both father and mother of the pig were also a 100% Iberico breed pig.

100% Iberico Bellota = Pata Negra.
All other Iberico hams are also often incorrectly called pata negra.
