Acorn-fed Iberico shoulder "Oro Viejo"
The certified 100% Iberian Shoulders, are made from the front legs of pigs fed on acorns during the fattening season in the pastures of the family producers. Sourced from 100% Iberian breed pigs on both the maternal and paternal sides. Raised in the wild throughout their lives, where they travel hundreds of kilometers in search of food in the Sierra de Huelva. This very natural way of life and the daily exercise they do are responsible for the peculiar fat of acorn-fed jamon iberico, an intramuscular infiltration that gives each bite an unmistakable texture and flavor.
In our Iberico Spanish ham shop, we bet on products of the highest quality, and without a doubt, the 100% Iberian acorn-fed pork shoulder Oro Viejo is in our catalogue.

This piece of the Iberian pig is obtained from the front legs of the animal, which are much smaller than the hams (hind legs). They have an approximate weight between 4kg and 6kg and you can choose in sections of 0.5kg.
It should be taken into account that the yield of an acorn-fed Iberian shoulder is lower than that of hams, so you should calculate a use of around 30-35% of the total weight of the leg.

Once started, you must protect the meat of the pork shoulder where the cut has begun with a layer of the initial fat from which it has been removed to preserve its unctuousness and drop a clean kitchen cloth on top.

This fantastic Iberian pork shoulder should start with the stifle, the narrow part of the piece that we observe with the hoof downwards, if it is going to be consumed in a period of 3/4 weeks, the opposite of the mace, the widest part and meaty if we put the hoof up, which is the one that will best be preserved during the tasting period thanks to the greater infiltration of fat from the Iberico Spanish ham.
