Product description: A very special Serrano ham indeed, the Orce Serrano Ham Reserva continues to cure for an additional 12 weeks in the cellars and is available to pre order should you wish. Originally named the ‘150 Reserva’ as only 150 were commissioned this ham proved so popular that the curing house regularly reserves a collection of the best 8kg examples.
A beautifully rustic Spanish ham with real depth and character your reserva delivers a pleasant but not too over powering intense flavour accompanied by a delicious texture and aroma. From La Carniceria de Julian and unavailable outside Spain the reserva is real treat for the discerning gourmet. Hams are chosen by hand to order, tested for ripeness and wrapped in muslin the same day they are dispatched. A piece of real Spain direct to your door from the heart of rural Andalucia.
Flavour notes & gastronomy: Delicate, mature, deeper colours, reliable depth. Stronger flavoured ham so is well suited to good red wines, almonds and fruits such as melon, peach and sweet orange or apple. Slice thinly and leave to sweat for 10 minutes at room temperature to enhance flavour, slightly salty but superbly balanced, lovely depth and pleasantly aromatic.
Storage: Hang in a cool, dry place. Once cut into your Orce Reserva ham will last up to 6 weeks, smear olive oil over exposed meat to prevent drying out and cover.
