Serrano Ham  
Serrano is a Spanish word meaning "mountain", which is the area that provides the ideal processing conditions for the Serrano ham. Cured in the cool, high altitude, this ham comes from the hind leg (jamon) and fore leg (paleta) of the hog. The meat has a coarse texture and is served thinly sliced for appetizers and sandwiches or as a complement to other foods.
