I've read many a blog post about jamón, a Spanish ham and I was very excited to see some for sale at Pennisi's. I couldn't resist getting some to try. They had some Jamón Iberico and some Jamón Serrano so I bought both, for comparison purposes.

The Jamón Iberico was a pretty low quality, but it was still miles away from the prosciutto I'm used to (the only cured ham I am really familiar with). It was silky smooth and a flavour that I really couldn't describe.

The Serrano wasn't as exciting, to me it was too similar to prosciutto.

It was quite a fun experiment, and I'm a happy food blogger trying new things!
