The finest Jamón Ibérico is called Jamón Ibérico de Bellota (acorn), which is generally served raw in thin slices, similar to Italian Prosciutto. Bellota Jamones are prized both for their smooth texture and rich savory taste.

Jamón Ibérico is a type of jamón, a cured ham produced only in Spain and Portugal. It is made from the Black Iberian Pig, also called the cerdo negro or black pig. They are the only breed of pig that naturally seeks and eats mainly acorns. The pigs are allowed to roam in pasture and oak groves to feed naturally on grass, herbs, acorns, and roots. At a certain point the diet is restricted to only acorns.

Don't dress this meat up with other fixins. It is decadent enough on its own, and the flavor needs to be savored!
