If you'd like to try bellota (acorn-fed free range) jamon without spending a fortune, the Fermín paleta ibérica de bellota is your jamon. Made from the front leg, it's a good deal smaller and more affordable than it's hind-leg counterparts.

Produced by Fermin (pronounced Fair-meen) in Salamanca, Spain, this jamon is known worldwide for its consistent top quality and delicate, sweet flavor. The black-footed pigs this jamon is made from are free-range, roaming Spain's extensive Holm oak forests in search of acorns (bellotas) and wild herbs. The pigs' diet and active lives lend themselves to firm, well-marbled jamon that is a treat for all the senses: delicious to taste and smell, wonderful to see, solid to touch and with a soft swish as you slice off the first layer of fat to reveal the ruby red flesh beneath. You cannot help but close your eyes when you slowly melt the fat with the warmth of your mouth and savor the rich, nutty and salty flavors. Don't worry. Due to it's acorn diet, Iberico Jamon is very high in monounsaturated fats which is supposed to lower your LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol. That's a good thing! 


As per FDA regulations, the hoof has been removed from these jamones. Gluten-free.
