Iberian Pork “Corona”

Cut from the upper part of the back of the pig, the “Corona” is obtained from the carré, deprived of the cover of excess fat, and the intercostal muscles, better known as ribs. This is a classic cut of the Spanish pork-butchery and a fitting reference to one of the symbols of Iberian culture: in fact, if rolled up and closed at the ends, the cut takes the shape of a classic crown, the emblem of the history of Spain’s monarchy.

We are in Salamanca, in the Autonomous Community of Castile and León in northwestern Spain – and more precisely in the municipality of Guijuelo: one of Spain’s four Denominations of Origin regions for Iberian ham. Blázquez breeds only selected 100% pure Iberian female pigs – characterized by their unmistakable flavor and their genetic predisposition to assimilate oleic acid obtained from the acorns or “bellotas” – and 100% Duroc and Iberian male pigs, which on the other hand contribute to the marbling of the fat, and consequently to a meat that melts in the mouth.

Blázquez pigs are raised in freedom or semi-freedom in very large wide open areas, where they can move freely: this contributes to stronger and more toned muscles. Moreover, the animals are allowed to live longer lives – over the age of 11 months – above the minimum required by Spanish law. As this is a pig that runs free, lives well and longer than its counterparts, it will provide a more delicate and succulent meat.

In addition, Blázquez, which owns vast lands in both Castile and Andalusia, produces its own pig feed in-house: a diet consisting of wheat, barley, corn, soybeans and bran supplements the acorns that the pigs love to feed on during the “montanera” period in autumn and winter. An exquisite product, like all Blázquez meat cuts, quick and easy to prepare and which requires a single, important tip to ensure the best flavor: despite what one may be inclined to think, the meat must be treated like beef, and therefore served strictly rare.
