    Black pig versus white pig re jamon

    Sun Jun 06, 2010 4:33 am Groupie
    G'day First of all I LOVE jamon MUCh better than proscuitto (which I am a fan as I grew up with it)

    I have been reading Frances Mayes A Year in the World and she and hubby start off in a bit of a difficult read...not in words, but there is so much to take in with every couple of pages, I read a little, then digest it etc

    It was only when they mentioned the white pig versus black pig (and jamon has to be at least 75 percent black pig) that I googles and found this

    Learn someone new every day

    so aside from cost ....can someone maybe describe what the vario0us jamons taste like if possible and 2)

    am wondering how does "an ordinary person" know they are getting a jamón ibérico de recebo from a jamón ibérico de recebo

    as would not be as easy I presume to just tell by the brand or label

    thanks for being patient and understanding to one who eats with her eyes icon_smile.gif lol


    I thought the article was interesting and didn't know if other people here might too!

    Re. tastes, I am not an expert on the differences between the Jamóns available...............but, I am willing to give it a go and will see if I can get both for a taste test at my local supermarket!

    Gday and thanks

    always GREAT when I can inspire others to do too

    when next I am at my Italian specialty store, will enquire too as is virtually almost the only place in Adelaide MIGHT be able to get it with too...

    other than that might have to do a trip to the Adelaide markets but rarely if ever get to town unless I HAVE to...

    not becoming an olod fart, just too difficult at the moment to do!


    WISH I could have a tasting platter too!
