Montaraz UN1CO Pata Negra Jamón Pre-Sliced Platter
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 Ibérico pigs dine on a diet of Bellota (acorns) during the montanera season, a period between October and 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 curing process is held to the same high quality that the Montaraz family has maintained since 1890.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: This delicacy is pre-sliced by hand and is ready to serve! Serve at room temperature to maximize its flavor. This product makes for an impressive hostess gift. For aesthetics, you may wish to easily transfer the ham to your own plate.
