What do I need for slicing?

Despite what you might think, slicing a ham leg is not difficult. All you need is a ham holder, a special ham slicer knife, and a bit of practice, that's it!

 

Jamón Ibérico de Cebo vs Jamón Ibérico de Bellota

The primary difference between Jamón Ibérico de Cebo and Jamón Ibérico de Bellota lies in the pigs' diet and the resulting flavor and quality of the ham. Jamón Ibérico de Cebo is sourced from pigs that are mainly fed on cereals and grains, producing a ham with a pleasant but simpler taste. In contrast, Jamón Ibérico de Bellota comes from pigs that roam freely and primarily eat acorns (bellotas) and natural pastures, particularly during the montanera season. This acorn-based diet gives Bellota ham a more complex and intense flavor, with a higher fat content that penetrates the muscle, making the ham exceptionally tender and aromatic.

From Sierra de los Pedroches (Córdoba), Spain

COVAP is the largest farmers cooperative in Spain. Since 1959, for over four generations, our farmers have been dedicating their lives to raise the one and only purebred Ibérico pig. Over the years tradition met excellency, and today COVAP is an award-winning company with worldwide renowned products.

Our free-range 100% Ibérico pigs enjoy roaming on very special acorns in one of the largest holm oak forests in the world. They eat up to 20lb of acorns a day! The fallen acorns from these ancient oak trees are sweeter than in other areas in Spain, and as a result, our salt-cured hams are very balanced instead of salty.

The Valle de los Pedroches has the largest expanse of centuries-old holm oaks in the world: over 300,000 hectares of continuous Dehesa, providing acorns to our Ibérico pigs and a natural habitat for them to live freely.

A one-of-a-kind place in the world, with a privileged microclimate for curing that imparts the unmistakable personality to our Ibérico products.

Because we are a cooperative of livestock farmers who, generation after generation, have upheld a commitment to authenticity.

Our livestock farmers have been breeding the finest Acorn-Fed Ibérico pigs for over four generations, making us a symbol of tradition and quality.

These two values are something we can guarantee throughout the entire process, thanks to our closed production cycle, which encompasses raising our 100% Ibérico breed pigs and the artisanal and traditional crafting of all our products.
