There is a long heritage of producing high-quality jamons in Spain. To produce a great piece, it is not enough to have good pork, time, and salt. Creating the best hams requires expertise and experience working with the best raw ingredients and raising the pigs with the patience and care it takes to achieve the best outcome.
The Gran Reserva Jamon Serrano offers a taste of this best outcome and is one of the quality non-Iberian jamons in the market. Goikoa has crafted a jamon from superior quality Duroc pork and allows it to be cured for a minimum of 24 months (the highest on the market for jamon, in its category). This long process of curing allows for a rich taste that is enjoyable in various ways.
Add to your charcuterie platter with some sheep or goat cheeses, soft feta cheese oe even soft cheeses with fresh basil. Other great cheese pairings include Manchego cheese and blue-veined cheeses like Gorgonzola, Stilton or Roquefort.
To properly conserve and extend the ham shelf life, store in a cool, dry place, with the ideal serving temperature between 17-22º C.
