Acorn-fed 100% Iberico Ham by Cinco Jotas
Acorn-fed 100% ibérico ham par excellence brought to you directly from the age-old dehesas (meadows) of Jabugo in southwest Spain.
Cinco Jotas ham comes only from pure-bred iberico pigs raised free range in the dehesas. It’s a long and slow process: a typical 100% ibérico pig takes nearly two years to reach full development, followed by about three years of natural curing in local cellars.
With hints of acorns, wet grass and thyme, the aromas titillate your senses and kick-start the gourmet experience before it even begins to melt in your mouth. Once it does, flavors of acorns, toasted hazelnuts, wet wood and wild flowers linger in your mouth as the fifth flavor, umami, adds a final element to astound and delight your taste buds like never before.
There are endless ways to eat Cinco Jotas acorn-fed 100% ibérico ham to enhance its flavor - with bread and tomato, in a sandwich, or as a simple appetizer – transforming any recipe into a gourmet dish. A glass of Manzanilla sherry, Spanish cava sparkling wine, or champagne brings out the superior flavors even more.
