Which Spanish ham to buy?

When buying a Spanish ham, it is important that you know the product you are going to buy and the different hams you can find on the market.

First of all, it is important to remember that ham is obtained from the back of the pig. It weighs approximately 7 to 8.5 kg. Although sometimes you can find hams weighing up to 10kg. It has a bone to fat ratio of 50%.

In short, there are 2 types of ham, the ham that comes from the Iberian pig (Iberian ham) and the ham that comes from the white pig (Serrano ham). As you can see, we are referring to the breed of the animal, putting on one side the Iberian breed pigs and on the other side the rest of the pigs.

The conditioning factor of the breed is the one that will determine other key aspects that will differentiate one ham from another. These aspects are: the animal's diet, the curing time and the environment in which it has been reared, i.e., whether it has lived in captivity or in the wild. If you want to buy a Spanish ham leg, you are in the perfect online shop.

There is nothing like Spanish ham, we can find products that come from the same animal such as Italian ham or Austrian-German speck, but the curing process of Spanish ham is unique and gives rise to a unique product. It doesn't matter what Spanish ham lovers arround the world call it: "jamon ham", "Spanish prosciutto" or "Spanish jamón leg", they always refer to Spanish cured ham.

Types of cured ham that you can find in our shop

Spanish cured ham is considered to be those pork legs that have undergone a curing process based on salt and natural drying. It is the dame process for both the ham and the shoulders.

Iberian ham

Iberian ham is considered to be all hind legs from the Iberian pig, which have been cured and dried using the usual procedure and are certified by means of a label or seal around the ankle. The certification not only certifies the purity of the Iberian breed, but also determines the food the animal has been fed. An Iberian ham, regardless of its breed or diet, cannot be cured for less than 24 months.

Serrano ham

Serrano ham is considered to be all hams that are not certified as Iberian ham and have undergone a traditional curing and drying process. Unlike Iberian ham, Serrano ham is not certified as such. In some regions, producers have grouped together and created PDO’s and PGI associations, which guarantee the quality of the product and the good practices with which it has been produced. The production process is exactly the same, the difference is the breed of the pig.

Pork shoulder

Pork shoulder is considered to be the front legs of the pig. Within the pork shoulders, we can find serrano or Iberian shoulders, just like hams, the difference is that Iberian shoulders come from pigs of at least 50% Iberian breed and are certified. The rest of the pork shoulders, which are not Iberian shoulders, are considered serrano shoulders.

How to buy a good Spanish ham?

Now that you know the different types of Spanish ham, you can choose a ham that best suits your tastes and differentiate an Iberian ham from a Serrano ham, so that you don't take you for a ride.

It is very important that if you are looking for an Iberian ham that you are guaranteed that it is certified.

Morphologically, Iberian pigs differ from white pigs because they have a black hoof, but if it is not certified you will not know with certainty the feeding, breeding, breed and curing that this ham has had.

If you do not know the ham, seek advice. In Gastronomic Spain we have a chat service where we can answer any questions you may have.
