Buen productoGood product

Buen producto. Sabor y olor adecuados. Por poner un "pero", la siguiente la pediré sin cortar, aunque la presentación es muy buena, se pierde algo de sabor.
Volveré a comprarla deshuesada y en dos trozos. Al cortarla cuando se consume, teniendo envasadora de vacío, se conserva perfectamente.

Good product. Appropriate taste and smell. To put a "but", I will order the next one without cutting it, although the presentation is very good, some flavor is lost. I will buy it again boneless and in two pieces. By cutting it when consumed, having a vacuum packaging machine, it is perfectly preserved.

Spalla 5J CincosShoulder 5J Cincos

Spalla davvero gustosa. .e l'aspettavo un pochino più magra, ma anche il grasso è davvero profumatissimo. Che dire, una spalla gdibilissima fino alla fine e mai secca. Ottimo prodotto.

Really tasty shoulder. .and I was expecting it to be a little thinner, but the fat is also really fragrant. What can I say, a very enjoyable shoulder to the end and never dry. Great product.

Geschmack super, wenig Schnken extrem viel FettGreat taste, little snort, extremely much fat

Wir haben uns einen 4,5KG Bellota Vorderschinken gegönnt. Insgesamt sind wir aber nicht wirklich zufrieden. Geschmacklich war der Schinken hervorragend, keine Frage, aber: Wir hatten noch nie einen Schinken mit so viel Fett. Der Anteil lag geschätzt deutlich über 50%. Das bedeutet abzgl. des Gewichts vom Knochen, bleibt da von einem 4,5 Exemplar nur ganz wenig Schinken übrig. Seit ca. 15 Jahren leisten wir uns zur Weihnachtszeit einen Iberischen Schinken (verschiedene Qualitäten, Vorder und Hinter), aber noch nie hatten wir eine so geringe "Ausbeute" von essbarem Schinkenfleisch. Das war dann doch neben der sehr guten Qualität sehr sehr enttäuschend! Das Preis/Leistungs-Verhältnis stieg dadurch auch auf ein unakzeptabeles Niveau.
4,5 Kg PALETA" 5J CINCO JOTAS Voderschinken

We treated ourselves to a 4.5 kg Bellota ham shoulder. Overall we are not really satisfied. The taste of the ham was excellent, no question, but: we have never had a ham with so much fat. The proportion was estimated to be well over 50%. That means minus the weight of the bone, there is only very little ham left from a 4.5 specimen. For about 15 years we have been able to afford an Iberian ham (different qualities, front and back) at Christmas time, but we have never had such a low "yield" of edible ham meat. In addition to the very good quality, that was very very disappointing! As a result, the price/performance ratio rose to an unacceptable level. 4.5 kg PALETA" 5J CINCO JOTAS shoulder ham

How to slice a spanish cured shoulder

The slicing of a ham with a knife is part of the genuine, quality Iberico ham tasting experience. It is a simple process too, with the right equipment. Nevertheless, certain safety measures should be observed.

  • Use a holder designed for this purpose, to keep the shoulder firmly in place.
  • When slicing, the hand not holding the knife should always be higher than the hand holding the knife.
  • Keep your body at a safe distance from the cutting area.
  • Slice slowly, without applying too much force.
