The term Serrano ham is a Spanish term, whereas prosciutto is Italian, and both are cured meats. Spanish ham is always cured with the leg, although once the curing process is complete, the ham can easily be boned. Spanish cured ham has a powerful flavour and texture – when the bone is not removed, it gives the product a more distinctive taste and aroma. Production areas are very extensive, since we are talking about a very traditional product with a long history. It has always been made right in the family home. Not too long ago, in fact, it was very typical for families to raise their pigs and make jamón serrano themselves for their own personal consumption. Today this continues to be done, although of course the majority of ham production has since been professionalised for the mass market. <a href="/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/iberico-ham/">Buy Iberico Ham</a> at our online store and find it out.<br /><br />The most recognised type is the Trevélez ham, characterised by its 100% natural curing, with no additive and protected by the Jamón de Trévelez PGI, or Protected Geographical Indication. In the province of Granada, Baza hams are also seen as prestigious and are produced naturally, with no additives, giving them a unique flavour. We also have the Serrano de Serón hams, belonging to the PGI Jamón de Serón, located in the geographical area of Alpujarra of Almería, in the Andalusia region of Southern Spain.

Therefore, since there is no type of intermediary, you can get<strong> the cheapest spanish hams</strong>.<br /><br />It has the best producers, such as those of Embutidos Morato, awarded on numerous occasions for <strong>the best jamon iberico</strong>.<br /><br /><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/fabricantes/benito.html" target="_blank">Benito hams</a>, internationally known or hams from small producers who pamper their products in detail located in the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche,<strong> Huelva</strong>.<br /><br />We also offer the best pieces made in <strong>Extremadura and Guijuelo</strong>. <strong>Buying at Jamón Pasión</strong> is a guarantee that you will obtain very high quality products. </p> <h2>Buy Iberico Ham Online</h2> <p>It might be daunting at first to choose what ham to buy from the wide selection available. Pata Negra hams, for example, tend to be more suitable for special occasions and significant events, such as a wedding or at Christmas, as the outlay is much higher than other types of ham.</p> <p><strong><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-pork-shoulders/iberico-ham-shoulder/" target="_blank">Iberian pork shoulders</a></strong>, on the other hand, are much more within reach of a wider public – it is to be noted, however, that their fat content tends to be much higher than other hams.</p> <p>The <strong>Spanish Iberian ham “Cebo de Campo” Iberico Ham</strong>, are another great option as they tend to be less expensive than acorn-fed Iberian hams, and the Jamón Pasión online store has a great selection at very reasonable price points.</p> <p><strong> Iberico cebo jamon</strong>, on the other hand, tends to have excellent flavour but not so much taste or aromatic complexity. For this reason, it’s much more reasonably priced with respect to other types of Spanish cured hams and is perfect for everyday consumption. Of course, if complexity of flavour and a lean, reduced fat consistency is important to the consumer, the acorn-fed or field bait hams are ideal, as the feeding of acorns, fruits and herbs plus the exercise they do while roaming the open pastures and meadows give them great quality at a good price point for most consumers.</p> <p>Buy Iberico ham online at our store today.</p> <h2>Quality Iberian Ham</h2> <p>The Spanish Cebo de Campo pig is definitely worth knowing about when selecting which Iberian ham to buy, the “<a href="/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/bellota-iberico-hams/">Bellota Iberico Ham</a>”. This pig is where the Iberian Cebo de Campo ham originates, and comes in several varieties of purity: 100%, 75% and 50% Iberian breed. The most widely available and sold to consumers is the 50% Iberian breed.<br /><br />Like other types of ham we’ve mentioned here, this type of pig is raised in freedom, able to roam at leisure outside in the Spanish pastures and meadows, and feeds on the natural resources already available in the field. Although acorns are not specifically intended for them, they may have access to them on certain occasions and if quantities are sufficient. Open-air farming for this type of pig is crucial as the animals travel many miles every single day searching for herbs, which gives their meat a distinguished and distinctive texture and consistency which consumers love.<br /><br />Also in the category of Iberian pigs are the bait, where the <strong>Iberian cebo hams</strong> originate from. The vast majority are of 50% Iberian breed. This type of pig is raised in an intensive manner on pig farms. They are not free to roam and they are not fed on natural resources available on the field, such as grasses. Their diet is strictly based on high-quality cereals. <a href="/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/serrano-ham/">Serrano hams</a> are also available and a wide selection can be found on our website at jamonpasion.com, on our online store.</p> <h2>Prices and Offers for Iberian Ham</h2> <p>Our online store at jamon pasion offers visitors packs that are made up of <strong>Jamon Serrano</strong> with an assortment of pork sausages of great quality at a very reasonable price, as well as the option to purchase packs of cured pork shoulders.</p> <p>You can also purchase batches of ham together with a wooden ham holder, ham knife or iberian chorizo, which make great gifts.</p> <p>Some of the jamón iberico prices are: Packs of 100% natural Serrano ham, batches of Trevélez hams, Extremadura hams and 100% natural additive-free hams from the mountainous Spanish region of Sierra de Baza are just some of the packs of ham available to visitors of our online store at jamonpasion.com.</p> <p>Christmas baskets can also be made from the purchase of individual items from our store – select the ham or pork shoulder you prefer and add sausages or ham accessories as a nice extra gift.

During the entire fattening stage they are left free to roam the meadows, giving the final ham a distinguished and distinctive quality, aroma and taste. Our hams are sent straight from the factory, from their natural drying rooms located in the same place of production, ensuring the highest quality and the lowest prices, as we do not work with any intermediary or distributors.

We’re also proud to be working with Black Diamond Hams, well-known at a European level for their exquisite 100% Iberian acorn-fed ham. As for their origins, our products derive from Extremadura and Guijuelo, a town in the province of Salamanca, in the Spanish autonomous region of Castile and León.</p> <h2>The uniqueness of Iberian Acorn-Fed Ham</h2> <p>Buying your ham from Jamón Pasión is a guarantee that you’re getting the highest quality ham. Proof of this is the fact that our products have four Protected Designation of Origin indications available in Spain: Dehesa de Extremadura, Jabugo, Guijuelo and Los Pedroches. Iberian (Ibérico) ham is different from other cured meats produced in Spain, as it’s smell, consistency and taste are specific to the breed of pig and its diet. Even within the category of <a href="/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/iberico-ham/">Iberian ham</a>, there are differences according to what kind of diet they have been fed. Iberian ham in general originates from pigs that have been reared out in the open air, in pastures and meadows, and that have been fed mainly on wild fruits, herbs and acorns during the montanera season – from October to February, coinciding, directly with the time of maturation of the acorn. It is almost always the middle of October when the pigs are taken to the Dehesa, or Iberian pastureland, to graze and if the season is good, the phase extends until the end of March.<br /><br />The category of Iberian hams includes acorn-fed hams of Spanish origin, of both 75% and 50% Iberian breed, as well as those of 100% racial purity, also known as Pata Negra (literally “Black Leg” – this is black-label ham sourced from acorn-fed pure-bred Black Iberian pork). The diet and aging of Pata Negra and non-Pata Negra hams does not differ – the only distinguishing feature is the degree of racial purity. It is to be noted that the pigs have access to acorns only during the montanera season (October to February/March), while the rest of the year while still enjoying the outdoors and grazing in the field, they are fed with cereals and legumes.</p> <h2>Spanish Acorn-Fed Ham Prices</h2> <p>Jamón Pasión’s ham products come in a wide selection of prices to suit all customer needs. One of our most premium products is our prized 5 Jotas 100% Iberian acorn-fed ham. For more price conscious consumers, we also offer our fantastic Morato branded 50% Iberian acorn-fed jamón ibérico ham or even a wide range of <a href="/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/serrano-ham/">Serrano hams</a>, such as our 100% natural, additive-free “Jamón de Juviles” Reserve Serrano ham.</p> <p>We recommend <strong><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/bellota-iberico-hams/iberian-jamon-pdo-los-pedroches-jamonpasion.html" target="_blank">"Jamón Pasión" PDO Los Pedroches 100% Acorn-fed Iberico ham</a></strong> from pigs reared in the wild throughout their lives and fed on acorns and wild grasses during the "montanera" season.

  • Pata Negra Ham
    <p>Popularly, in Spain, when we want to imply that a product, especially a food product, is of the best possible quality, we use the expression <strong>pata negra</strong>, appropriating the meaning we give to the highest quality ham legs: 100% iberico acorn-fed hams.</p> <p>It must be understood that the name <strong>pata negra</strong> refers to the <strong>high quality</strong>, rather than a physical trait of the pig, since the vast majority of Iberian hams, even if they are not acorn-fed, also have black hoofs, except for some breeds, such as the Manchado de Jabugo, which has white. Even the Duroc breed of pig, which produces very good quality <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/serrano-ham/" target="_blank">Serrano hams</a>, can have a black hoof and is not Iberian.</p> <p>Since the regulations regulating the quality of Iberian ham and its labeling came to light, among many other issues to guarantee the product, the term pata negra ham can only be used to refer to <strong>Spanish hams made from 100% Iberian pigs</strong> and that have fed on herbs, wild grasses and especially acorns during the montanera season.</p> <h2>What is pata negra ham?</h2> <p>A pata negra ham is an Iberian ham that has been produced from the hind legs of purebred Iberian pigs, i.e. its progenitors are 100% of the Iberian breed and have been reared in the open air, feeding on the natural resources of the countryside and acorns during the fattening season, when these fruits are ripe, from October to March.</p> <p>Of all the <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/iberico-ham/" target="_blank">Iberico hams</a>, this pata negra category is one of the most sought-after thanks to its <strong>unbeatable quality and the unique gastronomic experience it provides</strong>, very different from many other meat products.</p> <p>It is very easy to distinguish it, since it must have a <strong>black flange or label</strong> (clamp) around the shank of the ham, near the hoof, with the logo of the ASICI (Interprofessional Association of the Iberian Pig) which should read: <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><em>Jamón de bellota 100% Ibérico</em></span>.</p> <p>Pata Negra Spanish ham can also be known as <strong>"black label ham" </strong>(jamón etiqueta negra) or "black flange."</p> <p>It is possible that there are commercial names in other types of ham that use the expression "black label ham", but in these cases, the ham will not have the black identifying flange that specifies the percentage of Iberian breed and its diet, that is, the acorns, nor may it appear written anywhere that it is an Iberian ham.</p> <h2>Why buy pata negra ham at Jamón Pasión?</h2> <p>All pata negra hams at Jamón Pasión are 100% pure-bred Iberian hams, and certified with distinctive legal labels that guarantee their quality. In addition to this obvious fact, each of our hams is stored in <strong>the producers' facilities under optimal conditions of temperature and humidity</strong>, guaranteeing that the meat retains its unequalled quality.</p> <p>When you buy from Jamón Pasión, you will also enjoy competitive prices and the best options to choose from.</p> <h3>Without intermediaries: competitive prices</h3> <p>Our pata negra hams are <strong>shipped directly from the place of production</strong>, without intermediaries or warehouse changes that could affect their quality. After selecting your pata negra Iberian ham from our online shop, an expert verifies the quality by calado, which involves assessing the maturation and aroma by inserting a thin, elongated instrument called a "Cala" into specific points of the ham.</p> <p>This process without intermediaries not only guarantees quality, but also allows you to enjoy more competitive prices when purchasing Pata Negra acorn-fed hams. We also offer Acorn-fed 100% Iberico pata negra <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-boneless-ham/" target="_blank">Boned hams</a>, which are prepared immediately after purchase. The rind and surface fat are removed and vacuum-packed for delivery.</p> <h3>Variety of high-quality options</h3> <p>Additionally, at Jamón Pasión you will find the highest quality options, including <strong><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/bellota-iberico-hams/iberian-jamon-pdo-los-pedroches-jamonpasion.html" target="_blank">PDO </a><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/bellota-iberico-hams/iberian-jamon-pdo-los-pedroches-jamonpasion.html" target="_blank">Los Pedroches Pata Negra Acorn-fed iberico ham</a></strong> and<strong><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/bellota-iberico-hams/pdo-jabugo-100-iberico-bellota-ham-oro-viejo.html" target="_blank"> PDO Jabugo hams</a>.</strong> These designations are a guarantee of excellence and are granted only to Iberian products that meet the most rigorous quality standards.

The most notable are the following:</p> <ul style="list-style-type: disc;"> <li><strong>The percentage of Iberian breed</strong>: As we have explained, Pata Negra ham is 100% Iberian, while in acorn-fed ham the breed purity can vary between 50% and 75%. This is because a purebred pig, which must always be the mother according to regulations, is crossed with a Duroc breed pig, obtaining 50% Iberian, or a purebred pig with a 50% Iberian, obtaining 75% % Iberian Iberian breed.</li> <li><strong>Fat infiltration</strong>: A pata negra ham, obtained from a pure breed Iberian pig, has less fat infiltration, resulting in a meat with a greater proportion of lean and without as much marbling as an Iberian acorn-fed ham crossed with Duroc might have.</li> <li><strong>Flavor</strong>: Although the two Iberian hams are of excellent quality and have an intense flavour, the Pata Negra ham will have <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><em>more differentiated nuances</em></span> , such as more pronounced notes of acorns and nuts.</li> <li><strong>Shape of the leg</strong>: The more racial purity, the more stylized the leg of ham will be, obtaining an elongated, profiled shape with a much finer shank than other hams.</li> <li><strong>Price</strong>: Buying acorn-fed pata negra ham will always be somewhat more expensive than acorn-fed ham, which is not 100% Iberian, although the difference is not substantial.</li> </ul> <p>For everything else, they are very similar. They have several similarities precisely in the most important thing when it comes to making Iberian hams: the <strong>type of aging and the diet</strong>. In both cases, it is exactly the same. They are raised outdoors, traveling many kilometers daily in search of pastures and during the montanera season, they feed exclusively on acorns and other natural resources from the pasture.</p> <p>All these similarities and differences between these two categories of Iberian ham can also be applied to<strong> pata negra acorn-fed Iberian pork shoulders </strong>and bellota iberian por shoulder.</p> <h2>Characteristics of pata negra ham</h2> <p>The main characteristic that differentiates it from the rest of the hams is <strong>the combination of its percentage of Iberian breed, which is 100% pure, with its diet based on acorns and wild fruits in the pasture</strong> during the montanera period. Only this combination, and no other, of racial and dietary factors, results in this gourmet product so appreciated around the world.</p> <p>Externally it has an <strong>elongated appearance and a thin leg</strong> , with a good proportion of external covering fat, greater than any other Iberian ham. Internally it has a lower percentage of infiltrated fat than other Iberian hams, resulting in a more cured meat, with less marbling. By having less fat infiltration, its flavor will be more delicate, where the nuances will stand out easily.</p> <p>It is a product that <strong>from a nutritional point of view provides many benefits</strong>, both its meat and its fat. Due to the consumption of acorns, which can reach 12 kg/day per animal, the fat of Pata Negra ham contains a large contribution of unsaturated fatty acids, such as oleic acid, around 55%-60%. Just a little bit less than olive oil. Despite what it may seem, it is a very good ally of good cholesterol (HDL) and reduces bad cholesterol (LDL).</p> <h2>Consumption of acorn-fed pata negra hams</h2> <p>The most purist fans choose to <strong>savor the Pata Negra Iberian ham on its own,</strong> avoiding its use in culinary preparations so as not to disguise its subtle gastronomic nuances. At most, they would choose to accompany it with bread and cheese, or a suitable wine that does not compromise the delicacy of the product.</p> <p>Although it can be used <strong>at room temperature in various recipes</strong> (without cooking), such as in typical Spanish dishes such as broad beans with onion, peas with ham, artichokes or the famous broken eggs with ham, for an authentic culinary experience, it is recommended to enjoy it in thin Freshly cut slices straight from the leg.</p> <h3>How to cut pata negra ham?</h3> <p>For long-term consumption, as is common at home, it is recommended <strong>to start with the stifle</strong>, which is the narrowest part and is shown with the hoof facing down. This area is less juicy and more seasoned, so leaving it until last could make it too tough and difficult to cut or eat. In contrast, the mace, which is the part with the most fat and juiciness, will remain in excellent condition for a long time.</p> <p>In this article we explain step by step <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/blog/how-to-cut-a-spanish-ham-at-home-n5" target="_blank">how to carve a ham leg</a>.</p> <h3>Pairing of Iberian pata negra ham</h3> <p>It is very common to pair pata negra acorn-fed ham with aged or reserve red wines, like most red meats with a powerful flavor, but a wine of these characteristics could camouflage the flavor of the ham. If you are going to choose a red wine, make sure it is a <strong>young red wine</strong> that has not spent much time in the barrel.</p> <p>According to experts, <strong>white wines</strong> help the ham stand out more. As it contains fewer tannins, the astringency decreases and the flavors of the slice of ham are enhanced.</p> <p>By having more acidity, this type of wine helps cleanse the palate so that each bite of pata negra ham is a new explosion of flavor. Always choose <strong>dry white wines</strong>, never sweet.</p> <p>Sommeliers and those most knowledgeable in pairing affirm that the best combination for a good Iberian pata negra ham is <strong>Fino and Manzanilla</strong> . They are white wines with the particularity of having a lot of body but with a delicate character. Furthermore, the floral and nutty nuances of these wines form the perfect combination with the fat of the ham and its acorn nuances.</p> <p>On the other hand, <strong>champagne and cava</strong> would also be a good choice.</p> <h2>How to preserve pata negra Iberian ham</h2> <p>The care and maintenance of a pata negra acorn-fed ham is quite simple and can be summarized in following some basic tips:</p> <ul style="list-style-type: disc;"> <li><strong>Get rid of all the packaging</strong>: When you decide to buy a pata negra online, you will surely receive it very well packaged to prevent any damage during transport. As soon as you receive it, you must take it out of the box, remove the greaseproof paper and the cotton cover so that it can breathe and the humidity does not create mold.</li> <li><strong>Locate it in a suitable place</strong>: The ideal is to put it in a place in the house away from direct sunlight and external heat sources such as stoves, radiators or appliance motors.</li> <li><strong>Cover the cut</strong>: Once you have started eating the acorn-fed pata negra ham, although it is customary to put a slice of bacon that was removed when cleaning it on the cut, it is not appropriate. It is advisable to cover it with a layer of plastic wrap and drop a clean kitchen cloth on top of it. It is a very good idea, if you do not consume ham daily, to spread a little of the fat on it, as if it were butter, which we can obtain by scraping the sides of the ham with the blunt part of a knife and thus keep that area hydrated.</li> </ul>
