Don Cala’s Reserva range is our silver medal winner. Also available in a shoulder format which are finer and slender in appearance than our hams, and now available boned. Fed mainly on the fruits of the cork oak and the natural herbs of Salamanca, these pigs have been allowed to roam freely in natural areas of more than 10.000m2. Carefully cured and boned by the hands of our master craftsmen and presented to you in a convenient 2.5 kg piece.

Cured for 24 months.

GMO and gluten free.

The ham shoulder

The ham shoulder is the front leg of the pig and contains slightly less meat than our hams. Considering they are smaller and weigh less the curing process is shorter. Salting while raw exaggerates the taste and its reddish tone highlights the exquisite flavours to come. From our selection, we present to you four different categories of ham shoulder: Tradición, Sensación, Reserva y Gran Reserva.

The preparation of our ham

Once the pig is reared during the acorn season on the finest pasture lands in Spain between Guijuelo and Ciudad Rodrigo the careful hand crafting of each piece begins. The key phases of preparation of our Don Cala hams are the salting, washing, natural drying and finally the curing in our Salamanca cellars.

The meticulous selection of each piece, family knowledge and curing time, are all essential elements to guarantee the best quality possible.

Reserva

Our Reserva selection comes from pigs reared freely in a natural environment and fed with an exquisite diet based on grasses, cereal crops and cork oak acorns. Curing times are: 36 months for ham and 24 months for the shoulder.

Upon cutting an attractive cherry red colour is revealed with good marbling and a delightful lustre (both in the lean and fat) which are all characteristics of its high quality. Its flavour is delightful, sweet and intense in equal measure. For all tastes.

Boneless: Here at Don Cala you can also buy our hams and shoulders already boned by our master craftsmen. A boneless ham weighs around 4.5 kg compared to a boneless shoulder which is around 2.5 kg. You simply slice it to whichever thickness you prefer and enjoy it in the comfort of your own home.

 

Here at Don Cala, we want you to enjoy our Spanish artisan products in all their glory, that’s why we offer you various alternatives so you can choose which gastronomic experience suits you best.

Whole Pieces: If you are already a ham expert and have all the necessary tools, then there is nothing better than one of our whole pieces to enjoy a freshly cut slice of ham or shoulder. A whole ham weighs around 8 kg compared to a shoulder which weighs around 5.5 kg.

Sliced: Our sliced hams and shoulders come in vacuum packed sachets and weigh 80 grams. The perfect amount to eat before it can begin to dry out. Simply open and serve, to enjoy the unique, fresh and exquisite taste of Guijuelo directly to your table.
