BEHIND THE PRODUCT: Montaraz is the only brand of Spanish ham available in the USA that is 100% natural and free of additives (no nitrates or preservatives). Pata Negra is the famous “black label” jamón by Montaraz. Ibérico pigs are permitted afforded the luxury of grazing on over two acres of beautiful pasture during its eighteen months of growth. Select Ibéricopigs dine on a diet of Bellota (acorns) during the montanera season, a period between Octoberand January,when the acorns naturally fall from the oak trees that populate the Dehesa, or “grazing” pastures. The pigs will nearly double their weight before the ham is then cleaned and cured for 4 years. Every step of the curingprocess is held to the same high quality that the Montaraz family has maintainedsince 1890.
