Definition: When the sight of mummified pigs legs hanging on the wall not only doesn't make you do a double take, but makes your mouth water.
Few self-respecting bars in Spain would be found without at least one...in fact it just may be a requirement in the licensing process, Jamón, or Spanish Ham.
Sliced with a rapier-looking blade right off the bone, this deliciously nutty Ham makes Prosciutto seem like something from a wilted school lunch bag. At room temperature the oils start to liquefy making the wafer thin piece melt the moment it hits your tongue. The only way to accompany it is with a strong local red that can actually do battle with the intense flavors. Perfect simplicity, ham and wine, and there's no mustard in sight.
This is the Spanish version...do you have a different one?
