How a Ham Knives is made

Once the pork has been slaughtered and cut, the manufacture of a ham begins. The raw hams are completely covered with sea salt and salted for 5 to 8 days. Then the ham is cleaned and washed for salt removal. The ham is hung in a refrigerated camera during a period from one to two months. In this period the ham loses humidity and the salt is distributed throughout the whole ham. After this phase the ham is transferred to the dryer, where it will remain from six to nine months under controlled conditions. Once out of the dryer, the ham goes to its curing in a cellar, where it will be curing at a temperature of 15-20º.

Curing a jamon serrano

The ham curing time depends on the type of ham. Cellar hams (jamón de bodega) have shorter curing times than the pata negra hams. In an Iberian ham, the minimum healing time is 18 months. This time can be up to 48 months in some cases with acorn fed iberico. Always keep in mind the healing time when you go to buy a iberico ham.

The curing times of a ham depend on several factors. The type of food the pig had defines the type of fat in a ham, and each type of fat needs a different healing time. Acorn ham needs 36 to 48 months when a normal ham needs 28 months. The size of the piece also influences the curing time. The bigger the piece of ham, the longer its healing time. The climate also influences since it set the conditions of maturation. At a drier and warmer climate, the healing times are shorter.

Iberico and serrano ham prices. Which to buy?

The iberico ham can have any price. You can find cheap serrano hams and pata negra hams of very high price from brands like Cinco Jotas or Joselito. The process of making a ham is a very long process so the ham price can not be low. Jamon iberico comes from pigs reared in freedom which forces the pig to have a lot of space, making the ham price even more expensive.

Spanish ham. From jamon serrano to jamon iberico.

Spanish hams can be classified by several criteria. Because of its geographical origin, because of the pig's breed, because of the pig's diet and because of the type of cure.

Origin. Depending on where the ham has been produced, it will have a different denomination. The best-known ham areas are Jabugo in Huelva, Guijuelo in Salamanca, Trévelez in Granada, Teruel ... where some of the best jamones ibericos or iberic jamon are made.

Race of the pig. There are two important breeds: the white pig and the Iberian pig. Serrano ham comes from Duroc pigs that are larger and are raised on farms fed by feed. The Iberian ham or jamon iberico comes from Iberian pigs. The Iberian pig has a black hoof, this characteristic comes from the name Pata Negra.

Feeding. Depending on the pigs diet, the ham will have one flavor or another. Serrano jamon comes from pigs that are usually fed with fodder. Iberico ham can come from pigs fed with fodder, acorn or a mixture of both. The most intense flavor comes from hams of pigs fed with acorns.

Curing. The spanish ham curing time may vary from 6 months to more than 48 months of curing for the most exquisite hams.
