Cebo Ham, Pre-Sliced
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 Cebo line is produced from Iberian pigs which are not raised in total freedom, but which still enjoy a fair amount of space to move around and stay fit. The pigs are fed natural grains sourced exclusively from fields owned by the Blázquez family.
Despite not being “free” pigs, they are by no means “battery pigs” as they enjoy ample space to move around, which in turn helps produce their characteristic golden fat that literally melts in the mouth. The hams are aged using artisanal methods and diligently passed down from generation to generation: hams (jamones) and shoulders (paletas) are trimmed before they are cured. A layered pyramid of hams and whole sea salt is created. In order to ensure that all the meat receives a homogeneous brine, Blázquez’s expert workers move the hams that were on top the day before, rotating them into the pyramid.
A process that is never quite the same in terms of time: it is the skill and expertise gained over years of trade and craftsmanship that determine the perfect time to move on to the drying phase. The hams will lose their first moisture inside the “secaderos” – cold rooms with controlled humidity and temperature – for about three weeks.
In spring, the hams are moved to the upper floors of the facilities, where the natural “secaderos” are located. Very large rooms where the jamones will spend the entire summer, losing most of their weight as they gradually dry out. In autumn, the hams are taken to the cellar where they will complete their aging: a very slow process that will lead them to become the gastronomic excellence that is a must-have at any event or celebration.
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.
