Useful Information for Consumers

For the ideal handling and consumption of our ham, we are going to give you some useful information concerning storage and maintaining the aroma.

Preserving the flavour of a whole piece of ham

Ham as a whole piece is recommended to be stored in a bag of linen, in a cool, dry and well air-conditioned place. Our secret is to cover the cut surface with lard, to prevent it from drying out.

Preserving the flavour of sliced ham

We recommend keeping the slices of ham in their original package in the fridge. This is an effective way of preserving the freshness without losing quality. Our secret is to wrap the package with parchment when already opened.

Storing ham in the freezer

To keep ham fresh for a longer period of time, it is totally recommended to storing it in the freezer, no matter whether sliced or as a whole piece. By storing high quality ham in the freezer, one does not need to be afraid of a loss of flavour or quality.

How to recognize high quality ham

The colour of high quality ham is evenly red, while the fat is white and hard. The smell of high quality ham is enjoyable: Neither the smoke nor the pickling salt should mask the natural smell and taste of the ham. Furthermore, high quality ham is so tender that it can be bit through effortlessly.
