Coming from Iberico pigs fed naturally on grass, herbs and roots and fattened up on acorns during the Montanera season. The shoulder is usually richer in flavour than the ham. Iberico shoulders are cured for less time than Iberico hams as they are smaller and they require around 24 months curing period in natural dryers where they acquire a soft, fatty flavour that dissolves on the palate.
About Nitrates and Nitrites
Nitrites and nitrates are essential for both ensuring meat is cured fully and properly and also for allowing the complex flavours to develop. Much like sulphite is a natural and important part of wine-making - nitrites do the same job for charcuterie. They exist in minuscule quantities and so long as you don't consume mountains of cured meats every single day then you can rest assured that consuming our meats will only provide you with positive health benefits such as a strong heart and a powerful mind.
