The Protected Designation of Origin (PDO-DOP) certification gave it the dignity it deserves, whereas this breed exists only in the southwest territory of Portugal. Since then this product won top gastronomic prizes and compliments from experts in several countries expressing a highly appreciation of Iberian Black Pig.
Among all cured Portuguese hams and smoked sausages (enchidos), Presunto (ham) is the “king”, not so affordable but a worthwhile flavourful tasting experience, Chouriço is the most popular, in between and not less tastier we have the great Paiola, Painho, the less fat "Paio do Lombo", Linguiça (thinner than Chouriço) and the strong flavoured Farinheira (pork fat light coloured sausage).
Enjoy a terrific meal or host a party with the best Portuguese ham from Black Iberian Pig its a singular and delicious tasting meat that you hardly find elsewhere.
