Jamon Serrano

Definition: Jamon Serrano

Jamon Serrano

Pronounced ha-mon ser-an-no.
Spain's most famous ham is generally served in slices cut fresh from the pig leg. Similar to Italy's proscuitto, it is dry cured and considered a delicacy. The most expensive is known as pata negra and comes from a free range pig with a black hoof. Serrano Ham — as it is usually called — can be found in most major grocery stores in the US. It is often sold pre-sliced.

winniebaby: one comes from Spanish pigs and the other comes from Italian pigs. Also I think the curing process differs.
