I bought one of these Serrano hams eight weeks ago and despite grazing on it every day there’s still plenty left. I paid £40 and as that’s the average starting price in Spanish supermarkets I didn’t expect much from it. However it is extremely good quality, tastes wonderful and is actually better than hams I’ve bought for more money in Spain.
Hams will last for a long time assuming you don’t eat it all which is a posibility when it tastes this good. They’re marked reserva and, unlike the one I bought, are PGI stamped which by rights should be better in quality.
If you buy one get it out of the plastic vacuum bag asap and hang it up somewhere cool for a day or two, I hung mine in the garage. You could leave it like this for a couple of years as long as there’s a cool air flow.
There’s instructions here on how to carve.
I don’t like to promote any one individual shop but this is such a good deal I had to share.
Check with your local store for availabilty.
