Curing of Paleta Iberico

Cinco Jotas uses only 100% Cerdo Iberico pigs, also called cerdo negro or black pig, unlike virtually all other producers of jamon and Paleta Iberico who have bred these pigs with the Duroc variety.

This ancient breed of pig Cerdo Iberico is only found in the Iberian Peninsula. These lucky pigs spend much of their lives roaming the Dehesa woodlands of Western Spain, feasting on a diet consisting primarily of acorns (bellota, in Spanish).

It’s their active lifestyle, the acorn-laden diet, and unique weather condition that creates a uniquely marbled ham full of succulent, nutty that is like no other ham in the world!
