Product description:
Your Serrano ham ‘paleta’ is the front shoulder or foreleg and is cured in exactly the same way as its larger cousin the ‘jamon’ or full rear leg ham. The flavour from the paleta tends to be that little bit more intense as the leg is thinner and is often favoured by Andalucians. Although the leg is smaller this does not compromise the flavour and texture of the meat, these particular paletas come from the rural town of Maria where they cure 3000 feet above sea level for 8 months – the end result is a great entry level Spanish ham and the ideal gift from Spain.

Flavour notes & gastronomy:
An slightly more intense flavour compared to rear leg ‘jamones’ yet balanced. Accompaniments that compliment the flavour of the paleta include stronger cheese and red wine or for a cooler more refreshing experience try fruit such as grapes, peach and orange. Sliced paleta ham also makes great Spanish tapas and is a good entry level ham to experience flavours and the art of slicing Spanish ham.

Storage:
Store in a cool, dry place. Once cut into your Serrano paleta will last up to 3 weeks, smear extra virgin olive oil over exposed meat to prevent drying out and cover.

Product description:
The original Serrano ham from Andalucia, the term ‘bodega’ indicates a ham that has been cured for a minimum time of 9 to 13 months and this bodega ham is at the longer end of scale to ensure well cured quality. Your bodega ham is also cured 3000 feet above sea level with cold winters and long summers ensuring a beautifully flavoured ham. The bodega ham is a great option should be looking to purchase a gourmet gift or simply to have a nice Spanish ham in the home to enjoy.

Flavour notes & gastronomy:
Milder flavour compared to the paleta foreleg and longer cured reserva Spanish hams, a great all rounder which is easy to carve and boasts all the characteristics of a well cured ‘jamon’. Particularly good for tapas with a nice layer of fat (which can be removed should you wish) and goes well with fruit, milder cheeses and vine ripened tomatoes with bread and olive oil. A lovely cured jamon serrano and one that can be found in most Spanish homes in the region.

Storage:
Store in a cool, dry place. Once cut into your Serrano ham ‘bodega’ will last up to 5 weeks, smear extra virgin olive oil over exposed meat to prevent drying out and cover.

Product description:
From one of the most respected secaderos in the region ‘Torrente’ have been in business for four generations and are currently a Father and son team based in the town of Maria. The town lies in the shadow of the Sierra de Maria which creates a micro climate ideal for traditional ham curing, so traditional in fact that these hams are still hand tied high up on knotted rope as was done in days gone by. The reserva Serrano ham boasts a medium to strong flavour, ideal for those who like a well cured Spanish ham, not too mild but not as intense as a grand reserva. This ham has an average fat content, a brilliant white outer layer which compliments the meat inside. Leaving thin slices at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes will result in this ham ‘sweating’ which intensifies its unique flavour. A quality ham for the cheese and wine enthusiast.

Flavour notes & gastronomy:
Earthy hints, intense, textured with medium reserva notes. Enjoy this ham in two ways depending on your preference either with lighter flavours such as mild cheeses, young tempranillos or crianza or go bold and introduce a bossy Priorat accompanied by mature Manchego cheese and grapes. As a stronger ham it will do the work so it is best left alone to deliver its 16 month acquired flavour by itself. Compliments salads very well and cantaloupe melon perfectly.

Storage:
Store in a cool, dry place. Once cut into your reserva ham will last up to 5 weeks, smear extra virgin olive oil over exposed meat to prevent drying out and cover.
