How to buy pata negra ham online?:
Below you will find some valuable tips for buying a quality Spanish Pata Negra ham, online:
When choosing an Iberian ham (Jamon Iberico), its quality must be clearly stated.
First of all, its origin must be verified.
An Iberian ham can be from the region of Extremadura, Huelva, Cordova or Salamanca.
Among the characteristics of a pata negra ham, the variety must be indicated:
bellota, recebo or cebo.
In addition, the curing period must appear, which varies according to the quality, as the bellota ham needs a longer curing period than the others.
Iberian hams are distinguished by their elongated and delicate shape, as well as having a black leg.
It is important that these elements can be deduced from the photographs of the product, and if the ham received does not meet our expectations, it should be possible to return it.
Once in our hands, we may notice that the colour of the meat varies from pink to purple-red and that its texture is not very fibrous, the fat bright, fluid and bland to the touch.
The brand name is not among the most important things when you want to buy a quality pata negra ham, given that many mediocre manufacturers invest large sums in advertising while others, less well known, produce very high quality hams artisanally, despite not having the resources to make a name for themselves.
The most important thing is to buy them in shops that offer a good guarantee and the option to return the product if it does not meet the advertised characteristics.
