nice idea, but I doubt these will sell in Lidl at that price point, give it a week and they will be on special clearance offer :)

we've actually sold half of our stock already and they've only been on sale from today. Apparently this is cheap even compared to the continent. they are not re-ordetable so once they've sold out that's it until next year!
#3
How is this best eaten and what meat is it exactly?
#4
A similar type of meat is being offered through Amazon local less weight of the ham with a knife, sharpener and carving block for £85 and that is being advertised as as 49% saving so this is pretty good in comparison even when taking out the cost of the extras.

@jazzy1 it's a cured leg of pork, and you slice it thinly and have it as a starter, on its own or with bread.

The only way Lidl will shift these is up the jumper of the regular shop lifters - I mean customers!

Very good price. We buy from a local guy in the south of Spain and he charges the amazing price of £29/kilo, which people are always astounded at the value. Gives you some idea...

Sounds a great deal.......how long will it keep for... ?? and are there any special ways to keep it for a while ?? thanks
#11
Sssssssssh don't make it too hot, I want one! Lol

Where to get a stand tho that is decent in the uk.
#12
Good deal but if you're popping over to France Auchan are selling them for €25 currently.

Stands can be got on eBay. Look for 'jamonero'
#13
Very good deal, I was looking at these in Spain recently non reserva 4.5kg legs were 45 euros in the supermarkets.
#14
shame the stand is not included

Excellent value but............

Bought 2 yesterday - got them home and both mouldy unfit for use, will be returning today for refund

Are you sure they're mouldy? Air dried meats tend to look a bit dodgy on the outside.

Mould is fine if it is just on the outside, it's a feature of the form. It will only be on top of the fat which you then cut away anyway.

This is a great deal - yes they are this cheap in Spain but in this country you're looking at a price closer to £100.

In terms of keeping it, ideally you need a cold place to store once opened and you'll need to cover the exposed part, best thing to use is a muslin cloth.
#18
It certainly seems cheap, although without knowing exactly where it's from and what grade it is, it's hard to tell - 7kg of a popular grade of jamón serrano in Spain would sell for about £50, although you can certainly find cheaper legs of ham.

If comparing prices, remember that jamón serrano is not the same as jamón iberico (the expensive, top-end stuff).

Then you are being ripped off for the 'Giri' that you are I'm afraid. Unless it's Pata Negra which I doubt, you shouldn't be paying even half of that - it's about that price retail in the UK pre packed. E7.50 / kg in Portugal and not much more in Spain. Whole legs (not shoulder) from Teruel (el mejor!) are about 40 - 50 Euros. Remember the Spanish economy is the walking dead....

Not sure, I expect it will need to be kept in a relatively dry environment, like biltong which I make on occasion ;)(dried cured beef, similar to beef jerky only 10x better)

On the box it says its been matured for 12 months already, so a few months more would probably be ok as you go.

There were only 2 boxes left in my local store last night .. sent a pic to the wife of me holding the box so she could gauge the size. She sent a reply saying "wow .. it's so big" .. I curbed my response of "yes - they all say that ;-)"

Definitely no stand in the box? The picture kind of implies there would be.

That is a prime example of not knowing what you intend to put in your mouth, ;) air dry, along with the likes of salami is packed with nitrites & the like, having been prepped & brine soaked (for instance) then hung until moisture levels are at a satisfactory level (maturing or whatever you wish to explain it as) to assist the safe eating end product, which add to it's overall flavour whilst hanging in the air of a controlled environment.

Suggest you go & have a look at a proper deli counter, the principle is similar within cheese making, it's safe, it's as it's meant to be like that, often a crust as the outside is where the moisture from the inside is drawn out to prior to evaporation, (the weight loss is very extensive, this leg is a real bargain) ...get a knife properly sharpened & enjoy it!

The online advertising leaflet schmutter clearly states without, good thing, ..better value or else that would be a lot of bone & stand added to the end weight & cost.

Probably the Ham you try to buy on Spain was a better one. This is from a white pork and the one from Spain was not "Serrano Ham" probably it was "Iberian Ham" and this is a huge difference, so on the price.

FYI "Reserva" means nothing. The hams are "Iberico bellota", "Iberico recebo", "Iberico cebo" and "Serrano", from better to lower quality.

economy shot in Spain or not you can still pay over 200 euros a kilo.

Have no problem with thin layer of mould like colouring

Do have a problem with 1 inch long wavy strands of mould growing out from surface

It's not very expensive for what we get. Good quality Serrano can be expensive as well - I can't remember if what we get is Serrano or Iberico, as not been for a bit, but the place we go is excellent value for money. I'm a native speaker and have lived in Spain, and known this man for years. I'm not getting ripped off.

I don't try to buy it, I do buy it :) and eat it all as quickly as possible! This jamoncero's morcilla seca, which is also spicy, is great - too bad he stopped making it.

Sounds like what you're getting is much better quality then :)
I can't tell the difference so much with ham but the more expensive chorizos, lomos, morcillas are way better than what we can buy here.

If you are ever on the road between Pampaneira and Capileira in the Alpujarras (above Granada), around Bubión, look for the sign saying "Jamoncero Seco" on your left - the owner served in the merchant navy for many years and speaks English "fluently" - he actually does, but his accent is SO strong that it's easier for me to speak Spanish with him! - and will give you a tour of his facility. His cured meats are all absolutely amazing - the ham melts like butter.

Right, now off to book a trip to Spain................

I was lucky enough to attend a party last Christmas, where he had a 5 year old Iberico (about £700.00). It was beyond exquisite!!! I've just got off the phone asking for some advice...He says this is a great price for this kind of entry-level-ham!! So £39.99 later; My ham is being stored for our Family Christmas Eve buffet! I can't imagine it tasting anything like a £700 ham, but hey...I'm not a millionaire! So Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodbye X

"Brought mine yesterday , opened this morning to hang and store and it's got white fluffy mould all over it, never seen that before on this type of ham, so mines going back as well today"... Hi, don't worry about the mould, it's quite harmless! Look on 'hamlovers.com' or 'hamazing.com' for advice! Hope you enjoy your ham soon! Bye ;-)

Just returned mine, store manager said they don't have a replacement as they have all been recalled
