CHARACTERISTICS OF CINCO JOTAS ACORN-FED 100% IBÉRICO HAM, 6-7 KG:

Cinco Jotas (5J) is internationally recognized as the jewel of Spanish cuisine. 100% Iberian Bellota Ham from pigs bred freely in the vast expanses of the Southwest Peninsular, with a natural diet based on acorns. Cinco Jotas, true to its origins, has preserved the pure race of its pigs without crossing them with other species and also the natural ecosystem in which they are bred. The Southwest Peninsular ranges ensure the best feed for the Cinco Jotaspure Iberian breed of pig. During the Montanera season, the animals travel some 14 km every day feeding on acorns, their main diet and one that gives them their special taste and aroma features (also helping to reduce harmful cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health) and provides the texture and unique flavour. For over 130 years, Cinco Jotashas been using traditional and natural  techniques to make its products, traditions and techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. Its natural cellars are in Jabugo, in the Natural Park of Aracena and Picos de Aroche, which forms part of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Sierra Morena. This privileged location allows for the slow, natural curing process that only nature can provide. 

TIPS FOR CINCO JOTAS ACORN-FED 100% IBÉRICO HAM, 6-7 KG:

To be kept: at home, in a cool and ventilated place until consumption. After being received, the product should be removed from the sachet and the brown paper protecting it. For carving, the necessary equipment is required: a ham holder, carving knife with a wide blade to clean the inside and outside of the piece, a long and flexible ham knife and a sharpener are the basic tools to fully enjoy each piece. It is very important to leave the cut clean and adequately protected to prevent oxidation. We therefore recommend covering the exposed area with thin slices of fat from the ham itself. 

Consumption: To accompany this unique delicacy, we recommend combining it with any of our wines, but especially with our Osborne Fino Quinta, case of 6 bottles. Osborne Quinta Dry Sherry This combination enables the maximum flavour to be extracted from each product. When the shoulder blade begins to appear(the large flat bone found at the opposite end to the hoof), make a deep cut with small knife to separate the meat from the bone and facilitate slicing.
