Iberico Ham Fermín

Iberico Ham Fermín is a ham famous all over the world for its quality, properties and exquisite taste. It is one of the treasures of the Spanish cuisine, which can be accessed now here in the U.S. Iberico Ham Fermín produced in La Alberca, Salamanca, Spain; is obtained from the purest black Iberian pigs. The meat from Iberico Ham Fermín is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, is a sound choice to please the palate.

Iberico Ham Fermín is obtained from the hind limb of the black Iberian pigs. Selected from their own characteristics that demonstrate the purity of the breed, these pigs are fed on high quality grain in an extensive and free breeding regime. The quality of Iberico Ham Fermín is the result of the perfect combination of factors like purity of breed, breeding system, food and a healing and extending process that last up to 24 months. This ham has a texture, aroma and flavor that make it unique to the palate.

There are differences between Iberico Ham Fermín and the Iberico Ham de Bellota Fermín, given by the process of breeding and feeding of pigs, even though the quality of the animal is the same, feeding makes the difference in taste.

The elaboration process of Iberico Ham Fermín is slow and laborious; it can last up to 24 months and is carried out in five stages or phases like the selection and raw material receiving, salting and washing, settling, drying or warehouse, maturation and aging. During this process is very important the role of The ¨Maestro Jamonero¨ ,he controls the duration of each stage taking into account the characteristics of each piece and following an ancient tradition in order to get a quality product, unique in the market.

“Excellent quality and taste!! My wife and I were thrilled; we invited some friends to enjoy it before we eat it all. I contacted Francisco and he guided me with an excellent service. Product arrived on time. Very happy with my purchase.”
Alonso, Texas

“We use to buy other Fermin products (vacuum packed ham chunks, dry-cured pork loin slices) and let me tell you we won't go back to those. Last Christmas we decided to up the ante and go with The Paleta Iberica Fermin (pork shoulder) and, although the cost is obviously larger than packed ham chunks, the quality is orders of magnitude better and the experience of cutting your slices from the shoulder is pure magic. Together with the shoulder we ended up buying the cuchillo profesional para cortar jamon espanyol which has been performing smoothly (this knife is the Arcos Nitrum Serie Universal, and just for the inexperienced Arcos is probably the best knife manufacturer in Spain http://en.arcos.com/). And of course we needed a holder because otherwise the ham is impossible to cut and we went with the wooden holder Gondola model and the good people at Ham-Cheese-Wine upgraded it to a Fermin holder very sturdy and with a more modern look. Very, very satisfied with out purchase, still enjoying our ham and counting the days until we're done with it and it's time to order another one. Ham-Cheese-Wine, keep the good selection and service!!”

Once the first cut is made, use a slice of the ham or preferably the top layer of the fat to cover the cut surface, this prevents dryness and loss of flavor, also contributes to the preservation of the product and its quality for a longer period.

content and slow traditional natural healing in the warehouse. The fat must be soft, yellowish outside and must yield under the pressure of the finger. The unique quality of an Iberico Ham Fermín is the result of the ¨Maestro Jamonero¨ experience and due to the meticulous selection of the pure breed Iberian pigs, reared in the pasturelands and fed on high quality grains. To do this, the ¨Maestro Jamonero¨ is responsible for choosing those pieces that meet all the organoleptic qualities, also for processing and treating each piece according to size and fat content.
