Jamón serrano

Jamón serrano or “Serrano ham” is a type of dry-cured Spanish ham which includes nearly all varieties other than those made with black Iberian pigs which yield a special treat known as jamón ibérico. These aged hams have been a delicacy since before the Romans resided in Spain and although they command a premium price in the US, consumers in Spain and the European Union, eat the affordable, thinly sliced, deep red ribbons of fatty ham like Oscar Meyer cold-cuts.
