Jamon Iberico is what all pieces of ham aspire to be, the best in the world! You can find numerous different variations and varieties of this special ham. It is a well known Spanish delicacy and if you are lucky enough to afford it, then you need to learn some tricks and get some tips on enjoying the mind-blowing flavors of Jamon Iberico.

Learn How to Preserve the Jamon

The ideal temperature for storing Iberico ham is suggested by experts to be somewhere between 3-8 degrees Celsius and around 37 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit. The best place to store the ham would be somewhere dry and cold, preferably your fridge. Preserving the meat in the right way will allow you to enjoy the delicacy of this special ham like it is meant to be enjoyed.

Serving Iberico Jamon

After cooking the Jamon, the first thing you need to have is patience. It is very tempting to gobble all of the meat at once, but you have to let the ham breathe, just like a fine wine, in order to get the best taste. It is advised to let the meat rest for a period of 30 minutes before tasting, since it will cool down to room temperature and the fats in the meat will help it soften up for that melt in mouth texture.

Figuring Out the Perfect Time

Let’s get one thing straight! This is no ordinary piece of meat that you are going to devour. This is Jamon Iberico! Just let that sink in for a moment, before you even start contemplating cutting a slice for yourself. That is easier said than done, since when the meat is cooked and resting, the sensational aroma of the ham is extremely difficult to resist.

In order to enjoy the Jamon in the right way, you need to get everything perfect, which is why you need to figure out the right time to consume it. Here are some simple tips to help you judge that:

Look for the Shine

The first thing you need to look out for is the famous shine on the Iberico ham. If the ham is shiny, this means that the fats of the ham are melting and the meat is just about done.

Cutting It Easy

The next step would be to grab a knife and try cutting a slice of the ham. Does it slide through smoothly through the meat? If yes, then you have just cooked a perfect Iberico ham, and you should start making preparations to enjoy it.

Have a Drink

When you are having Iberico Jamon, it is only fitting to pour yourself a glass of the finest wine that you can get your hands on. Hey, if you are dining like a king, then you might as well drink like one as well and no Jamon dish is ever complete without a glass of wine.
