Hams are the most widely recognised part of the pig. They come from the two hind thighs of the pig which are bursting with meat. Each and every Don Cala ham is a unique piece straight from the natural curing cellars of Guijuelo (Salamanca). Its delicate and distinctive flavour surpasses even the most demanding expectations of Spanish cuisine. Discover our 4 ranges of 100% home-made hams and delight those you love the most with the aroma of the best freshly cut ham in the world.
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.
Our first selection comes from pigs that are reared in the finest pastures and nourished by the natural resources of an incomparable ecosystem. Curing times are: 26 months for ham and 18 months for the shoulder.
This comes from pigs that are not only reared in the finest pastures but are also free to roam and feed in an area of more than 100 m2 per animal. A more exclusive selection just for you. Curing times are: 26 months for ham and 20 months for the shoulder.
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.
In our Gran Reserva selection, you will find the most exclusive hams that come from pure-bred pigs reared in total freedom and fed on cork oak acorns. Curing times are: 36 months for ham and 36 months for the shoulder.
