上回介绍了Costco网上的意大利火腿。

今天接着讲Costco网上的西班牙火腿。跟意大利火腿一样,西班牙也有很多种不同的火腿。不过最有名的有两种:

 

1. Serrano ham (or Jamon Serrano) is a Spanish dry-cured ham. It's very similar to Italian prosciutto. The difference is that serrano ham is normally made from a specific breed of pig -- Landrace breed of white pig.

2. Iberico ham is processed in the same way as serrano ham and prosciutto, but its name is given based on the pig it comes from -- the Iberico pigs. This ham comes from either acorn, pastor or Compound-fed Iberico pigs. 

第一种我没有尝过,这里就不多写了。第二种是我的最爱,Costco网站上也只有喜欢的这种卖。

意大利火腿中我最喜欢的是Prosciutto de Parma.  介绍Iberico ham的同时顺便讲讲这两个的区别。

1。Prosciutto di Parma is aged for at least 12 months, The aging process of Iberico ham ranges from 24 to 36 months.

2。Authentic Iberico ham must be made entirely from the meat of black Iberian pigs, left free to roam in a pasture where they feed off oak acorns. Authentic Jamon Iberico derives from pigs whose diet is composed of acorns and grass, as well as the aromatic herbs growing wild in the meadows.

3。Nothing but salt is used to produce Prosciutto di Parma and it is forbidden to use chemical substances, preservatives or any other additives. Neither is smoking or freezing permitted. However Preservatives are allowed in the production of Iberico ham, even though producers do not all use the same ones.

4。Prosciutto di Parma regales an initial on-palate sensation of sweetness. And it has a soft velvety texture, it is neither soggy nor dry. It simply melts in the mouth. Parma ham is perfect when served with melon or figs or used to fill a bread bun. Try it with a fresh cheese such as mozzarella or burrata, or simply eaten with breadsticks. 

5。The flavour of Jamón Iberico depends on the fact that pigs feed off acorns and are free to roam. The texture is tender, fatty and melt-in-the-mouth with aromas of wild herbs, mushroom and truffle which increase in intensity according to the age of the ham. The meat of Jamón Iberico is of a deep red colour, characterized by a pronounced scent of meadow grass and herbs. Its fat is particularly sapid and intense, especially when it melts at a temperature of 32-33°, which is why it should never be eaten cold. Its aftertaste is particularly persistent. Jamón Iberico is strictly for eating on its own.

iberico火腿比Parma火腿贵太多,值不值呢?跟葡萄酒一样,值不值买贵的呢?没有正确答案。

每个人口味不同,每个人对食品生产加工方法有不同意见,个人喜欢最重要。先不说有没有食品防腐剂,火腿都含大量的盐,多吃都不健康。所以不经常吃,又不能一次吃太多,那些防腐剂和盐其实都可以忽略不计。过瘾第一。LOL!

我不建议买整个的腿除非有大爬梯。想吃的时候买一点尝一下就够了。再说Prosciutto不适合冰冻,因为冰冻过了味道大不一样了。

不好意思又啰嗦了这么多。谢谢看帖。
