- THE JAMÓN BREEDS -
🐖 We all know that the pure porc breed of 100% Ibérico is the best, but some Ibérico pigs will mate with another breed called Duroc and only spend a part of their life in the wild outdoors of a Dehesa.
Ibérico Porks - Traditionally, pigs raised in a Dehesa are pure premium breeds called Ibérico, which are especially distinguishable for having black feet. Did you know that the term “Pata Negra” is a direct translation for black feet?
Duroc Porks - The high-class breeds of Ibérico can also mate with another more common breed of “Pata Negra” pork, called Duroc. Although it also produces a delicate ham that can be enjoyed as 100% Duroc, this breed of pork is less rare than the Ibérico breed.
Others - Finally, Spain produces a wide array of good quality ham from common pork breeds. Labels such as Reserva and Grand Reserva, without details on its breed, will normally indicate a good quality Spanish ham. These cannot be compared to the prestigious Ibérico breeds!
