The Brindisa bellota shoulder (paleta) is made from pigs of 75% Ibérico breed that have fattened up on acorns on the dehesa of Extremadura for 10-12 weeks at the end of their lives. Expertly cured in Guijuelo, Salamanca for 2 years. Freshly sliced in our Balham Deli.
The shoulder (paleta) has more fat than the back leg, giving a remarkable richness to the meat. Sweet, savoury and nutty, it has a lingering aftertaste, intensified by the abundant acorn rich fat.
Ideal for sandwiches with crusty bread or pan de coca, tomato and extra virgin olive oil.
For best results, remove from fridge at least 30 minutes before serving.
*Please be aware that, depending upon which part of the ham your pack has been carved from, the proportion of delicious acorn fat to lean meat will vary.
