Bellota Ham, Deboned
The term “bellota” comes from the food that Iberian pigs are most fond of, namely the “bellotas” acorns. Great wide open spaces, very few pigs free to graze in packs, acorns rich in oleic acid, which will give their meat a unique flavor for one of the most extraordinary taste experiences ever. Blázquez is the first producer in the Salamanca area, in northwestern Spain, where the Guijuelo Denomination of Origin is in place, the first historically to be established for Iberian ham in Spain: the ham produced in this region is characterized by a delicate, fruity and sweet flavor.
The ham is cleaned and deboned directly by professional cortadors – true masters of the art of cutting jamón – halved, without any of the precious ham being wasted and immediately ready to be sliced and enjoyed.
The perfect product for those who do not have a professional jamón slicer on hand!
In compliance with the Denomination of Origin regulations, Blázquez works with selected 100% pure Iberian female pigs – characterized by their unmistakable flavor and their genetic predisposition to assimilate oleic acid – and 100% Duroc and Iberian male pigs, which on the other hand contribute that extra bit of internal fat, adding to the delicacy of the product. When the so-called “montanera” period begins (the last stage of the breeding of Iberian pigs), Blázquez releases a selection of its best Iberian pigs so that they can feed and fatten in the most natural environment possible, living in the wild on more than 30,000 hectares reserved for grazing.
When they are released into the wild, the pigs weigh around 90 kg: by the end of the “montanera” period, between January and March, they will reach over 180 kg! Incredibly, the pigs will gain nearly 1 kg a day by eating 10 kg of acorns every 24 hours. But in order for the pigs to reach their ideal weight, relying exclusively on an acorn-based diet, their density must be very scarce: one pig per every two hectares of land.
Great wide open spaces, very few pigs free to graze in packs, acorns rich in oleic acid, which will give their meat a unique flavor for one of the most extraordinary taste experiences ever.
The Blázquez family founded their ham company in 1932, in the province of Salamanca in northwestern Spain, based on the unique artisanal know-how of that time. Today, Blázquez continues to be a family-run company with almost 90 years of tradition in producing one of the most iconic Iberian excellencies: the Jamón Iberico De Bellota, commonly known as “Pata Negra”. Controlled genetics, a strict selection criteria based on unique know-how diligently passed down from generation to generation and self-produced nutrition: the secrets still carefully guarded by the third generation of the family. From the year of its foundation to today, Jamones Blázquez continues to remain perfectly faithful to its natural and traditional production processes.
