What is a pata negra ham?

The most visual difference between an Iberian ham and a ham from a white pig is that the Iberian ham has a black hoof while the other has a white hoof. This factor has led to the Iberian ham being referred to as pata negra, especially abroad. It is associated with 100% Iberian acorn-fed ham. A purebred ham fed on acorns, fruit and natural pasture.

For this reason, in Gastronomic Spain, when we mention a pata negra ham, we refer to the best quality Iberian ham.

The Pata Negra Iberian ham is obtained from 100% Iberian breed pigs. The Iberian pig is a breed of pig that predominates in the Iberian Peninsula and is characterised by its perfect adaptation to its habitat, especially in the dehesas.

Specifically, these types of 100% Iberian pigs live in the wild and feed on natural pasture and acorns throughout their lives. This is the ultimate expression of Iberian ham. A product that has been cured for a minimum of 36 - 48 months.

It is clear that Pata Negra ham, as they say, is the jewel of Spanish gastronomy. This 100% pure acorn-fed Iberian ham is the best ham on the market.

Pata Negra ham for sale. A ham certified with DO Guijuelo and DO Dehesa de Extremadura. A type of ham of 100% Iberian breed and fed on natural pasture and acorns.

If you want to enjoy a spectacular ham, do not hesitate to consult the Gastronomic Spain online shop. Experts in hams and in making happy people. With our deliveries available all over Europe, you won't have to worry about going to the supermarket, queuing up or carrying a thousand bags.

What certifies the black label of a black leg Ham?

The black label is attached to hams that come from 100% Iberian pigs reared free-range in dehesas and fed on natural pasture, fruit and acorns, which give it its unmistakable flavour and aroma.

In other words, the black label is the certification that guarantees that the ham in question meets the requirements and characteristics that make it a 100% acorn-fed Iberian ham.

Black label hams will be identified through the seal, in this case the seal is black. For both, this black label ensures that it is a pure acorn ham.

In many cases, the black label also indicates if it belongs to a specific denomination of origin.

Characteristics of a pata negra ham

The Pata Negra Iberian ham is a 100% purebred Iberian ham. This means that it has not been crossed with other breeds. The genetics of the Iberian breed means that as it is a ham obtained from purebred pigs, it has a higher content of unsaturated fats and more oleic acid than other hams, characteristics that make it very healthy.

At first glance, it is a fattier ham than the rest, with a consistent texture when cut. It has a darker colour and veining that stands out to the eye. The flavour is very characteristic and more cured than the rest of the Iberian hams. Its flavour even stands out from the rest of the hams, leaving a pleasant taste on the palate that lasts for a while.

Normally the curing period is at least 36 months, although it may vary depending on the weight of the Iberian leg of ham. This will depend on the percentage of fat and the size of the leg of ham. It should be noted that the thickness of the cane will also indicate the 100% Iberian purity, in this case it is much narrower than other crossbred Iberian ham canes.

Types of pata negra ham that you can buy in our shop

The truth is that a pata negra ham is a product that you have to know how to treat. If you don't have great skill with a ham knife, it is better to buy it sliced or in packets cut by knife. If the ham is not cut well, you will not get the maximum yield and even if the slices are thick, it will not taste the same.

On the other hand, if you want to enjoy this type of Iberian ham, but you don't have the budget to buy a whole leg of ham, you can buy it in packets. We offer you packets of Guijuelo pata negra ham and Andalusian pata negra ham. Undoubtedly, a real delicacy.

What is the price of a pata negra ham?

The pata negra ham is a high-end product, coming from purebred Iberian pigs that have been raised in exceptional conditions and fed with acorns. This ham is known for its unique flavour and texture.

That said, the price of a pata negra ham leg, which is the whole piece, can vary depending on the quality and age of the piece, but is generally between 400 and 600 euros.

If you prefer to enjoy this ham already sliced, the slices usually cost between 15 and 25 euros, also depending on the quality and the place of purchase.

Why should pata negra ham be eaten cut with a knife?

It is important to bear in mind that pata negra ham is a product that requires special handling techniques. It is better to purchase it sliced or in knife-cut packets if you don't have knife skills. If the ham is not properly cut, you won’t get the most out of it and if the slices are thick, it won’t have the same taste.

On the other hand, you can purchase it in packets if you want to enjoy this type of ham but don’t have enough budget to buy the entire leg. We provide you packets of pata negra ham from Andalucía and Guijuelo. Unquestionably true delicacies.

Brands of pata negra ham that we sell

The “Jamón pata Negra” is the most representative, valued and appreciated by consumers. The main mark to take into account when buying one of these hams is that the seal or seal around the hoof is black. This distinctive mark guarantees that it is a 100% acorn-fed Iberian ham.

If you are certain to be within this category of Hams, there is a series of brands that have own name, as can be Jamones Joselito and Jamones 5 Jotas. However, in Gastronomic Spain, we work with companies that produce quality Hams, but with a much better price - quality relationship. For that reason we work with Guijuelo Nieto Martin hams and Jabugo Lazo hams.
