How to eat CJSE Serrano ham

It is best to eat Consorcio Serrano Ham on its own, although it is usually accompanied by bread, cheese, fruit, fish, vegetables, etc.

Because of its intense flavour, it easily combines with any other product or with a wide range of personal touches according to the personal tastes of each diner. It can be eaten in tapas, added to simple or more elaborate dishes, whether for traditional or creative cuisine.

If you have a whole piece of Consorcio Serrano Ham, to start it, first remove the rind and trim the fat to your liking.

It is important not to remove all the fat, as this preserves the unmistakeable flavour of Serrano ham. We therefore recommend removing only half the fat surrounding it.

Because of its intense flavour, it easily combines with any other product or with a wide range of personal touches according to the personal tastes of each diner.

When carving, slices should be as thin as possible (paper-thin) to appreciate its unique texture and flavour.
