Jamon Serrano del Monte are free range Duroc pigs.
They are left to roam free in an encinar (an oak grove) and feed on herbs, roots and acorns. This gives the meat a wonderful light flavor and their stress free life improves the texture and quality of the meat. The Jamons are a cured for a minimum of 16 months.
The ham has a lighter taste but still with the distinctive Spanish jamon texture and flavour. This Jamon Serrano del Monte is an excellent and cheaper alternative to the more expensive Jamon Iberico Bellota and Jamon Cebo de Campo.
Care Instructions: A Jamon Serrano on the bone will last approximately 6 months if stored at room temperature in a dry environment. After carving the jamon will last for 8 weeks if cared for correctly – we recommend covering the exposed surface of the ham with a section of the removed fat and then covering the whole jamon with a clean, dry cloth (the supplied muslin cover is perfect) which will prevent the ham from drying out. Carved slices will last for 3-4 days if stored in the fridge.
We recommend using an authentic ham stand and carving knife to get the most from your jamon
