5 Kg Free Range Iberico Ham Shoulder

from Free Range Iberico Pigs Raised in Dehesas and 100% Natural Curation Process

The Iberico Ham Shoulder is the perfect choice for those looking for an intense and elegant flavoured Ham to share with loved ones. Ham Shoulders are the animal’s front legs (Jamon is the back leg) and are renowned for their delicate yet rich nutty flavours. This particular ham shoulder is sourced from Guijuelo in Spain, one of the Iberian locations famed for its Jamon production.

The whole shoulder’s average weight is 5 Kg. The finest ones are cured for 24 months and that provides an exquisite and intense flavour as the meat is closer to the bone than in Jamon. A true favourite in Spanish kitchens!

Before you buy

It is important to understand Whole Iberico Hams when purchasing one. Ham shoulders generally yield 40%. That means you might expect to get 1.7 to 2 Kg. of ham slices out of this leg if sliced properly. Everything else is fat and bones. Also Iberico Hams are 50% or 75% Iberico breed. Only Black Labels are 100% Iberico breed, also known as Pata Negra. But this is not really an important quality for the final product as what really matters is the lifestyle of the animal, their nutrition and the time of curation. Once your ham arrives, remove all the packaging and keep it at room temperature, it will last for another year! Once open, it will be good for another 45 days or so before it becomes drier. Just cover the surface with cling film when not in use. I hope this helps!

    Amazing, Amazing. Amazing

    Really good Jamon, it was a real feast! Can’t wait to try the Bellota one as well!

  3. clementina elphinstone (verified owner)

    Wonderful ham and incredible service – can’t recommend Black Hoof enough! Cant wait to purchase another!

    Superb!
    Obviously not cheap, but having tasted it, it is worth more than 4x the cheap ones.

    I’ve tried the supermarket ‘bargain’ legs twice in an attempt to recreate the experience of regular jamon tapas when on holiday in Spain.
    While it gave me a chance to practise carving, the Serrano (regular pig) versions (from “Lid-ldi”) tastes mostly of rather bland cured ham with overpowering saltiness.

    I ordered from Black Hoof the slightly smaller front leg (paleta) from a 50% Iberico pig.
    It arrived in 2 days.
    The flavour is genuinely delightful.
    My wife was wary of spending over £100 on this – I cut a slice and said
    “4 of the supermarket ones – or one like this?”
    She said “No doubt – one like this!”
    And that was about the outer few slices – it can only get better.

    We have tasted “5J” Bellota in Jabugo town – this is only 50% Iberico-bred pig, but it brings back those memories.

    If you don’t like the idea of a whole leg/shoulder to carve, order one of their boneless packs.
    Enjoy!

    The ham was amazing, a real treat for Christmas, thank you

    For many years I’ve been buying a Christmas ham in Spain gradually moving up the quality scale.

    Always Paleta, in recent years Pata Negra and, since we stayed around Jabugo and walked in the hills with the characterful pigs running around the olive groves I look for word Bellota (acorn). Acorns are sometimes included in the pigs’ diet for a period of months before slaughter. In the lanes around Jabugo you occassionally see elderly people walking around the countryside with a basket to gather acorns. Acorns are said to give the ham an improved flavour and a subtle sweetness. Cebo on the other hand implies grain fed pigs kept in a more intensive faming environment.

    After much research about buying online directly from Spain or from the UK I decided that The Black Hoof offers reasonable value so I bought one of these two months ago.

    The flavour is excellent. I have never had the luxury of having several hams at once to compare, but as far as i can tell this matches some of the finer hams I have bought in the past and is a world away from the serrano ham more commonly available. The Black Hoof have a good supply and I will come here again!

    Ham is just amazing, I would recommend it to my friends and for sure I became a regular customer. Despite the issues with the delivery service I had plenty of support from Carlos which sorted everything in the end. If thinking to bring a taste of Spain in your home then for sure this is the right choice, don’t delay it just get it and enjoy the real taste of Spanish ham.

  8. Seb (verified owner)

    Great ham although impossible to cut ended up throwing most of it away

  9. David

    Awesome jamon. Taste is very special a real treat.

  10. Jason (verified owner)
