    Description of Maldonado Pata Negra Bellota Shoulder

    42.00 €/kg VAT included
    100% purebred Iberian (pata negra)
    Bellota Top quality: pig fed exclusively on acorns (more)
    From 20 to 24 months.
    Shoulder (front leg)
    Hog cuts: shoulder
    Shoulder cut from purebred Iberian pigs reared on the open range in Extremadura on a diet of acorns during the fattening period, when they add at least 37% of their original weight. A purebred Iberian pig comes from parents of 100% Iberian bloodstock (not cross-bred) and accounts for less than 5% of the country's Iberian pigs.
    In the delicate processing and curing phase, Cárnicas Maldonado keeps the travel time to the slaughterhouse at a minimum and lets the animals rest to prevent stress, which can alter Ph levels.
    A minimum of salt is used for preservation to ensure first-rate flavour.
    After eight months in natural drying houses the hams go to the cellars, where they will age for 12 months.

    Taste note
    Cutting reveals a rosy-to-purplish-red colour with glossy streaks of marbling fat in the flesh. Very slightly salty. Full-bodied, intense aromas, highly nuanced. Subtle, delicate flavour.
    Outer appearance
    A medium-size shoulder, with a thin shank and black hoof. The outer side is covered with a thick layer of glossy fat. The inner side shows traces of white or bluish-grey fungal growth, an unmistakable feature of slow ageing in the cellar.
    Storing and expiry date
    It depends on the format. See "Presentation" below.
    One 5-kg piece gives about 1.6-1.8 kg net of shoulder slices (between 20 and 23 portions, 80 g each). More info


    Hams and shoulders are not packed in individual cartons. We place all the items you purchase in the smallest possible number of cartons to save on shipping costs. If you prefer having them packed in a different way, email us at info@ibergour.com indicating how many hams/shoulders you want, where you want them shipped and how you want them packed. We will calculate the additional cost of shipping according to your indications.


    We ship the whole shoulder wrapped in grease-free paper and an outside cloth wrapper, all encased in a plastic bag for maximum hygiene. When you receive it, take it out of the bag and remove all the wrapping. You can keep it hung by the string at room temperature for up to 6 months before starting it. Once cutting has started, consume it in 1-2 months.

    Once the shoulder has been started, mold may appear around the carving area if nothing has been consumed for several days, especially in damp climates or environments. This is normal; all you need to do is discard the first slice to eliminate the mold.

    5 stars Outstanding jamon., December 12, 2016
    A Brown (UK) Has purchased this product at IberGour

    A superb paleta with a beautifully balanced flavour, as good as the Joselito. Highly recommended. I was also attracted by the absence of nitrites, though I do not know if these do you any harm.

    How to slice a spanish cured shoulder

    The slicing of a ham with a knife is part of the genuine, quality Iberico ham tasting experience. It is a simple process too, with the right equipment. Nevertheless, certain safety measures should be observed.

    • Use a holder designed for this purpose, to keep the shoulder firmly in place.
    • When slicing, the hand not holding the knife should always be higher than the hand holding the knife.
    • Keep your body at a safe distance from the cutting area.
    • Slice slowly, without applying too much force.
