An essential requirement for a real Iberian acorn ham is the “dehesa”, a forest rich in acorns, in which pigs are raised in total freedom. Without it, a 100% acorn fed free range Iberian ham would not be possible.
The Iberian acorn hams of La Olla, with denomination of origin of Extremadura, are raised in the “dehesa” and are characterized by a series of parameters that impact our senses:
- Sight. They are deep red and shiny, with pearlescent fat
- Touch. They are light, silky, and soft in contact with fat
- Smell. They are sweet and penetrating
- Taste. They have an explosive sensation in our palate, and they are velvety in the mouth, slow melting and with infinite aftertaste
It takes more than 36 months in the cellar to obtain our Iberian acorn hams with denomination of origin of Extremadura.
