Costco網上的西班牙火腿

上回介紹了Costco網上的意大利火腿。

今天接著講Costco網上的西班牙火腿。跟意大利火腿一樣,西班牙也有很多種不同的火腿。不過最有名的有兩種:

 

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. 

第一種我沒有嚐過,這裏就不多寫了。第二種是我的最愛,Costco網站上也隻有喜歡的這種賣。

意大利火腿中我最喜歡的是Prosciutto de Parma.  介紹Iberico ham的同時順便講講這兩個的區別。

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火腿貴太多,值不值呢?跟葡萄酒一樣,值不值買貴的呢?沒有正確答案。

每個人口味不同,每個人對食品生產加工方法有不同意見,個人喜歡最重要。先不說有沒有食品防腐劑,火腿都含大量的鹽,多吃都不健康。所以不經常吃,又不能一次吃太多,那些防腐劑和鹽其實都可以忽略不計。過癮第一。LOL!

我不建議買整個的腿除非有大爬梯。想吃的時候買一點嚐一下就夠了。再說Prosciutto不適合冰凍,因為冰凍過了味道大不一樣了。

不好意思又囉嗦了這麽多。謝謝看帖。
