Where Does Salchichon Iberico de Bellota Cured Meat Come From?
For this Salchichón Iberico de Bellota, the pigs spend their last 3-4 months eating acorns until they reach the correct weight for slaughter. They roam freely within the nearly 1 million acres of dehesa (oak forest) in the Valle de Pedroches in Córdoba. This dehesa is notable for its Encina Oak trees, which produce acorns considered to be the sweetest in Spain, giving the meat its unparalleled sweet and savory flavor. This is the highest possible classification of Ibérico meat, and is quite rare. Store in a cool place.
Origin: Andalucia, Spain
