About Hams and Pallets

They are crystallizations of thyroxine of calcareous aspect. Their presence is synonymous of quality and it is favored in hams of long curation coming from pigs that have developed a greater athletic capacity during their feeding in the pastures.

The optimal curation period of hams and shoulders depends on many factors. It will be determined essentially by the weight of the piece, the feeding of the pig from which comes; acorn-fed hams need more time than the fodder-fed ones. And also the location and orientation of the dryer, and especially the climatology of the zone.

All these factors take part in the curation. Therefore the optimal time of curation will be always determined by the experience of the masters of ham, who knowing all the previous factors and after doing ‘la cala’ will settle down the suitable moment for the consumption.

When receiving the product you should take it off the packing and maintain it in a fresh and dry place. Its consumption should be in thin slices and at room temperature. You may increase your information about the consumption and maintaining in our section “Consumption”.

All the visitors who register as users/customers automatically pass to be part of the Encina’s Club. During the registry process you will decide if you wish that, through email, we maintain you informed about supplies, gifts and activities organized by the Club.
