    The Inception of a Delicacy: Joselito and Iberico Pluma

Joselito, the bearing badge of premium Spanish ham, stands at the intersection where tradition meets gastronomic innovation. Originating in the 19th century, the brand’s mainstay is a generations-old method of curing Iberian ham. Throughout the lineage of curators, careful preservation of the method has been practiced. Unaltered, they allowed it, the quintessence of the product to shine, to embody a piece of Spanish heritage. Joselito’s journey to the palate begins in the rustic meadows, the ‘Dehesas’ of Spain, home to the Iberian pig. The Iberian Pluma, a unique cut, lends itself to a particular diet consisting largely of fallen acorns. This diet, rich in oleic acid, results in a marbled finish, a factor that enhances flavors considerably. Whilst indistinguishable in its raw form, the true magic of Iberico Pluma unfurls only upon cooking to a perfect medium-rare. A morsel of trivia to be regaled at your dinners while serving Joselito’s Iberico Pluma.

Storage Instructions

For optimal preservation, store the Iberico Pluma in the fridge at temperatures around 0-4°C. Keep it in its original packaging or wrap it tightly to prevent air exposure. It is advisable to consume it within a few days of purchase. For extended storage, freezing can be an option; ensure it’s wrapped securely to avoid freezer burn.
