Elaboration of Spanish ham
Mr. Pedro Nieto Hernández, the Director General of the company PEDRO NIETO s.l., says that there are three requirements for the elaboration of acorn-flavoured ham of the very highest quality. This ham, unique in the world and cured in the Guijuelo drying sheds, only needs quality animals and feed and the affection given by such a traditional family business. In short, the best raw material and the painstaking elaboration necessary in order to achieve the best possible product, without considering the final cost, because the customer knows he finally pays for something unrepeatable.
The acorn-flavoured hams of Pedro Nieto are gran reserva, an expensive delicacy that is well worthwhile if the customer can afford it. The taste is pure gastronomy to its highest degree. An article from this company is a privilege that many seek and that those who persevere will find.
A slice of fine acorn-flavoured ham from Pedro Nieto is like a slice of paradise. All the senses enjoy this cured delicacy from black-foot pigs impregnated with an aroma that gives it an incomparable taste. This traditional product delights above all two of our most demanding senses: taste and smell.
The best restaurants of Italy, France, England, Belgium, Switzerland, and other countries consider this ham to be a great delicacy. Its elaboration is a kind of ritual of steps that must be taken slowly but surely following those natural laws that the product demands. Each item is monitored at all stages until it reaches the table for cutting.
Before this happens Pedro Nieto follows its salting process and its passage through the drying sheds in optimum climatic conditions throughout the year. To end this lengthy and meticulous process, the hams are placed in underground cellars for their last stage, where for almost two years they are watched over daily by ham experts.
We are sure that once the customer knows more about ham, the product Mr Pedro Nieto has given us a lesson about will be declared to be one of the most exquisite natural foods in existence. It is pure pleasure, and lacks cholesterol, added fat, or any other counter-indications for human health
