The genuine Juan Gargallo ham with Designation of Origin Teruel, which has been carefully selected for its extraordinary quality and made in our own drying shed located in the village of Albentosa (Teruel). The ham is cured in a traditional way following the method of “open window”: it takes advantage of the cold, dry winds provided by these Sierras, which also give to our product aromas, and hints of pine and aromatic plants. Its red and shiny colour once carved is a typical feature, with fat partially added into the muscle mass, and a fine and slightly salty flavour.
Pork hind limb, it goes through a process of salting, drying and ageing within the cellar. It is presented in its natural form, together with the eight-pointed star (the distinctive symbol of Jamones de Teruel with D.O) and the word “Teruel” fire engraved on the surface, including its identifier and numbered band of Jamón de Teruel.
