In-store special – 5J Ibérico de Bellota Jamón.  While not inexpensive, we received a price break on a leg of Cinco Jotas Ibérico de Bellota and are passing on the savings, while supply lasts. Cinco Jotas, or 5J, is considered by many to be the best quality Jamón Ibérico de Bellota in Spain. The family has been producing these cured hams since 1879 and were the first to graze their herd on acorns, in the Holm oak forests of Jabugo. While we also stock the pre-sliced and packaged 5J, which is extremely easy to tuck into a backpack, the flavor of the freshly sliced jamón is absolutely the best.   Tender and buttery, with nutty hints and a delicate flavor, it makes a superb sandwich or compliment to a meat and cheese platter.   Normally over $50.00 per quarter pound, now $38.75 per quarter pound, this is a great price for 5J.  Tasting is believing, if you love cured Jamón!
