A JUAN MANUEL ham is a handcrafted ham of the best quality, with the aroma and bouquet that an aged ham gives it just right.
We understand Iberian pork ham as the product made with the hind limb or leg from adult Iberian pigs, subjected to the corresponding salting, drying and maturing process. This ham comes from pigs raised in the pasture and fed from the montanera.
One of the most important factors that will influence the healing process del ham is salting. Subsequently, it rests in natural drying rooms where the fusion of external and intramuscular fats begins, "sweating" the hams, to finally go to the cellars where it achieves the right balance of humidity and temperature that make the extraordinary JUAN MANUEL ham possible.
