Product handling and selection

"La Cala" - How to select a good ham or shoulder ham?

 La cala para oler el aroma del jamón berico o serrano Selecionamos tu jamón o paletilla iberica o serrana

To select the ham or a shoulder ham in its optimum curing point is not an easy task. You need a specialist with large experience on this field. When we receive your order of a ham, we select your ham within its ideal curing point and with the weight you have ordered. This important process is carried out using all our senses:

  • The sense of touch allows us to know the curing process of the ham, touching all the different parts of it. The exterior fat provides us information about the quality and how it has been cured successfully.
  • The sense of sight gives us information about the proportion of fat. The different colour in the ham explains about the curing process and some areas used to have wrinkles on the skin.
  • The sense of smell comes with the “cala” process. This is a sharpened beef bone which is introduced near the ham’s bone to check its aroma. We get information about the curing process, the salt and the quality of the product.
  • The sense of taste is not our job, that’s left to you when you enjoy such a delicious dish.

How products are vacuum-packed?

When we cut the slices we place them in a thin silver tray.

When we get the right weight of the product we introduced it in a special plastic bag.

Then we put the plastic bag in the vacuum packing machine.

This process is done without delay to preserve its original quality, all flavour and aroma of the packed product.

When you want to serve it, we recommend to open it 15 minutes before so that the product recovers its original oily texture and the aroma.
