In case you are in the market for a fifteen-pound, $1400 ham, you better act fast as they are going up in price at the end of next month. A new 100% tariff imposed by the USDA will effectively double the price for all imported Spanish Iberico hams. Delicious beyond compare, the hams have a unique, nutty flavor due to their free-range acorn diet. A Spanish delicacy for years, the hams were only recently introduced to the US.
The pinnacle of ham achievement would not be complete without a serving device priced to suit. The Supreme Hardwood Ham Holder with Swivel Grip is â€œthe worldâ€™s finest jamoneroâ€. Constructed from dense Sapeli hardwood and heavy gauge stainless steel, the ham holder forms a solid base upon which to fasten your prized ham. The inclusion of a â€œgyro-clampâ€ (complete with carved acorn handle) allows for the ham to be turned for easy access to precision slicing. Hand crafted by the Pantaleon family, the jamonero will set you back $995.
Out of your price range? The good news is, you can taste this delicious ham at an affordable price. Itâ€™s definitely a treat, but the ham is available in (carefully weighed) small quantities.
