INGREDIENTS: Iberian Pork, Salt
About the Producer
For five generations, Montaraz have made 100% natural ham, free of additives and preservatives, cured with only sea salt in a slow, all-natural drying process to produce a unique flavour that you’ll find nowhere else in the world.
All our Iberian pigs come from Extremadura and have been raised and nourished in its sprawling grasslands.
The beginning of the entire process, the secret is a symbiosis between ham and sea salt to dehydrate each piece naturally, without additives or preservatives.
2. POST SALTING
A balance between temperature and humidity in which the salt is slowly introduced into each piece, initiating a process that over time will culminate in a masterpiece.
3. NATURAL DRYING CELLARS
The beginning of a long and delicate process that is created in our natural drying cellars, where the ham undergoes the climatic variations of the four seasons.
Time works its magic on the ham. It’s a slow process, done underground, where the more stable, natural conditions allow the ham to acquire its characteristic properties of flavour, smell, colour and texture.
5. THE DELI SOCIETY HAND SELECTION
We take the time to visit the cellars and hand pick our legs to sell with TDS and represent Montaraz and the Martin family.
