Cinco Jotas - - CINCO JOTAS ACORN-FED 100% IBÉRICO LOIN (HALF PIECE) - 1 LB
Gourmet - Size: 1 LB
Acorn-fed loin, carefully selected from the lower back of the animal, is considered by many to be the most appreciated cut amongst epicureans with exquisite taste. Unlike chorizo or salami, loin is cured as one long piece, rather than being chopped up and sliced. Because it’s made from just one cut of meat, there are no mysterious ingredients. The curing masters at Cinco Jotas take a whole acorn-fed ibérico pork loin and season it with paprika, garlic, oregano, and salt. This makes it the most treasured cured meats in Spanish cuisine, with fine marbling of sweet, nutty acorn fat. The form and size of caña de lomo makes it easy to cut, simple to store, and pleasurable to enjoy. The Spanish call it lomo. We call is cured pork loin – or “supremely delicious” for short. This cured loin handcrafted in Jabugo, and wrapped in an elegant cylindical package, is one of the most appreciated and valuable cuts among Iberian acorn-fed ham lovers. Derived from a section of the lower back or lumbar muscle of the animal, it's known to have a powerful and fragrant aroma, a faint garnet and ash color and a defined sheen. Aficionados of ibérico products appreciate its peppery and smoky flavor that lingers on the palate.
