in between the many courses over the past couple of days i served a simple & light meal of:
sliced jamon iberico with torn new season figs, drizzled lemon olive oil, cracked pepper & a slice of toasted walnut bread
it was perfect amid all the rich food we have been indulging in!
jamón ibérico – is ham made only from the iberian pig. the breeding of the iberian pig is restricted to an area in south western spain & south eastern portugal. although fed some cereals, these pigs also roam countryside and feed on acorns. the curing process lasts from 14 to 36 months. the result is sweet, soft meat & classed as the premium of the jamons.
