Where to buy Iberian Acorn-Fed Ham
Jamón Pasión’s selection of Iberian acorn-fed ham is made from pigs fed a healthy mix of grass, wild fruits and acorns. 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. Our collaborations with local producers and farmers extend to award-winning brands such as the prestigious Embutidos Morato, prized for their distinguished jamón ibérico (Iberian ham).
Other brands we work with include 5 Jotas and Sánchez Romero Carvajal. We also partner with Benito Hams, a well-known producer both regionally and internationally, as well as smaller independent acorn-fed ham producers located in the mountainous Andalusian region of Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche, in Huelva. 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.
The uniqueness of Iberian Acorn-Fed Ham
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 Iberian ham, 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.
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.
