Conservation of Oro Viejo Jamon Iberico
A high-quality Iberian ham such as Oro Viejo must be properly maintained so that it does not lose all the wonderful qualities that it has at an aromatic, flavor and texture level. It is convenient, once received at home, to discard the greaseproof paper wrapper, the protective cover and place it in an area of the house where it does not get direct sunlight and away from heat sources, such as ovens, stoves or electrical appliances in general that generate heat.
Once the cut has begun, just cover the exposed part with a piece of the ham fat resulting from cleaning it, which should be changed periodically as it will oxidize. A very good idea is to scrape some of the side fat with the blunt part of a knife and spread it, as if it were butter on the cut part and thus prevent the area from drying out excessively. Then drop a cotton rag on top.
The ideal is to start the piece from the narrowest part of the Iberian ham, which is the driest, if it will take several weeks to consume it. If you start with the juiciest part of the ham, when you turn it over, that part may be drier than desired.
