Preparation and Pairings

- Before opening the bag, submerge it for a few seconds in warm water to more easily separate the rashers.
- Once open, the ham should remain on the plate at room temperature for about 15 minutes before eating to reach the ideal 24ºC.
- Use your fingers to eat it rather than with utensils.
Pair with a celebratory sparkling wine such as Bohigas Brut Reserva Cava.
A TREASURED LOCATION
The Cinco Jotas company has been producing jamón ibérico in Jabugo since 1879. The dehesas there have been home to the famed pata negra for hundreds of years, an unparalleled setting that has provided the animals with their favorite food—and the central key to their unique flavor: the acorn.
Because of their exquisite location, Cinco Jotas’s cellars are able to maintain the perfect balance of humidity and temperature to bring their hams and other products to full potential. Each and every single product ships out from there with a stamp of superlative quality.
Vacuum-sealed packs of hand-carved cured meats can last up to five months in the refrigerator (never the freezer). Once the pack is opened, they’re best enjoyed within the day.
