What is it? This is a boneless piece of Iberico ham with most of the outer layer of fat removed, meaning you're basically getting 100% yield from the piece - you won't have to throw anything away.  Although this is best sliced on a deli machine, it can be done by hand.  Here are the characteristics:

Jamon: Spanish for 'ham'.  Easy.

Iberico:  An 'Iberico' ham is fundamentally different from a 'Serrano' ham because the pig used is a different race - the black-footed, Iberian pig.  The properties of the meat produced by this pig are what gives Iberico ham it's highly sought-after characteristics: a richer, darker colour; a stronger, more complex flavour; fine veins of delicate fat running through the meat etc.

Cebo: This is the non-acorn fed variety of Iberico ham.  Whilst the difference in price is enormous, the actual difference in flavour is not so massive.  The main flavour components come from the fact that this is still an Iberico pig, which is common to both 'bellota' and 'cebo' varieties.  The 'cebo' lacks the slight fruity/nutty edge which raises the 'bellota' to caviar status (and price).  If you're new to Iberico hams, this is what we'd recommend as a starting point.

Guijelo: a town and surrounding area in Salamanca, famous for the production of Iberico meats.

Boneless:  The bones and the outer coating of fat are removed by hand before they are divided into pieces and vacuum packed.

24 months:  This ham is brought to market in the 2nd year after slaughter, which means it has been cured for 24 months.  The longer a ham cures, the longer it has to develop the exquisite flavours and textures typical of Ibericos.

Please note that the price of this product is based on 750g which is approximately the minimum weight of a piece.  In reality, pieces can weigh up to approximately 850g, so you're effectively getting some for free.

Abundio Matas have been producing Iberico meats in Guijuelo since 1922. They meticulously select the best pigs and let them run free in their extensive 'dehesa' where they enjoy a natural diet, foraging for acorns and grasses. The meats are then expertly cured in the cool, dry climate of the high Salamanca hills.

Ham from Guijuelo can only be officially called so if it has the DO sticker on it.  With that little sticker (the ham is identical) and the more famous name, the price is significantly higher.  We think paying more for an identical product with a different name is silly, so we bring you this product - identical (and we mean identical, not just similar) - at a much more competitive price.  If you'd like to know more about our policy regarding protected names and quality marks, click here to read a full explanation.
