Whole (7kg) Serrano Ham including wooden stand - a festive centrepiece £39 @ Asda

77
Found 24th Nov 2014
Circa 7kg whole leg of ham just £39 – including the wood stand – and will make a great centrepiece for your festive celebrations. It is carefully preserved using traditional methods so it will keep for weeks in your kitchen – ready to impress your guests throughout the festive season.

Serrano ham is a Spanish delicacy. Our specialist suppliers in Girona, Spain, have been producing authentic cured and cooked meats for over 75 years.

The whole Serrano ham leg is trimmed, cleaned and covered in salt for two weeks to draw off any excess moisture and to preserve the meat. It is then left to hang for up to 18 months before being delivered to Asda.

This process of curing the meat is protected as a “Traditional Speciality Guaranteed” (TSG) by a European Union regulation.

It proved a huge success with the discerning crowd at this year’s Taste of London Winter show – where other Serrano hams were available at more than twice the price!

Abigail Rogers told us: “I’m really impressed with the serrano ham – it’s really good value. For £39 with the stand, it’s just superb, and the quality is fantastic too.”

Whole Serrano hams are available from selected stores while stocks last – please phone your local Asda in advance to check on availability if you’re making a special trip.

Any idea of the weight of it?

that's a lot of ham!

Plus you'd need a big table ! As a veggie, Id prefer a bowl of sprouts

Hi, bought this today. The box states 7kg. When I got home I weighed the ham just to make sure the weight quoted did not include the stand. The ham weighed an impressive 7.5kg in it's vacuum sealed bag. Seems good value with the stand kit included.

Looks lovely

So thats 55p per 100g. What's it in the shops £1 per 100g??

I wonder how long this keeps for? I'd imagine a while hung in a cool place?
When we were in Spain it was hung above the bar, all that smoke and dust adding to the flavour!

It's been hung in Spain for 18 months before delivering to asda.

Storing your serrano ham is simple. When you buy your ham it will be covered in rind and waxed. You can keep it just like this at cool room temperature for up to a year or so.

Once you’ve started cutting your ham it is best to eat it within two to three months.

It is important to cover any exposed areas to keep it fresh and prevent it from drying out. The best way to do this is to keep the strips of rind and fat that you cut off to start with and re-cover the exposed meat.

Even better would be to rub some olive oil over the exposed meat first and then cover. If you can’t use the rind then a cloth or some cling-film will do the job.

Serrano hams should never be kept in the refrigerator, even after carving has begun. If you do have to store your ham in the refrigerator you must remove it and let it acclimatise for several hours before serving.

That is class! Hope my local has it, tsk

Hi, just checked the Asda website, Serrano ham on promotion from £2.50 to £2.00 per 100g pack. This is obviously easier to use as pre sliced and no waste. I think the whole ham has a certain wow factor for the table, just hope I can cut it thinly enough.

Hope the price per 100g helps, if you have not tried it before consider buying a 100g pack before making the big purchase.

cheap without a stand never mind with

I have bought a 5kg piece from Amazon some years ago (for double the price!) and it does indeed require a good (long, thin & flexible) knife. When you come close to the bone it is even more difficult to cut. But, I love it!

If you to buy some 100g from the counter make sure you tell them to slice it the thinnest possible. I have once bought it sliced like normal ham thickness and it is difficult to chew.

I would thought dry cured jamon is pure protein, unless you eat all leg in one go

Yes it's 55p/kg but that includes the bone & fat, I'd reckon you'd lose 35%-40% to fat and bone

They had 3 in the Oadby Asda in Leicester in the fridge section..

I so wish!!! No Fattening. Most cured meats are!

I bought one on Groupon a couple of months back. It's a labour of love and after a few beers quite hard to slice properly. Very addictive though!

Stuff the Turkey, get this instead!

Months...

So is this ham cooked or need cooking or does the curing process effectively cook it?

That's not going to fit in my fridge.

Aldi and Lidl usually do these too - probably where Asda got the idea from!

It really is too much for one household though. Processed meat in excess is a real health threat.

Good price, voted hot.

Very difficult to slice nice and thinly though, meat slicer like this helps.

I hope you're right - we've still got a Lidl one in the garage that we bought at the end of March - time to make a start!

Yep. That's exactly how Serrano ham should be stored. It gets that nice black gold flavor. Just perfect!

Thats just great so as well as having turkey for a **** week I now have to have ham for another two. Cheers.

Seriously though I like a taste of the finer things in life but not a whole leg.

I normally buy a big gammon for Boxing Day every year (£20 cost max) from the supermarket, boil it to cook, then glaze and roast it in the oven. I'm wondering if this would make a posh alternative for this year, but I've never tried Serrano ham before! Could anyone advise on flavour - far superior to my usual Boxing Day ritual? Any advice would be much appreciated xxx

Great deal for a lovely piece of Ham.

Does it still have the toes and nails on it?

I saw this today and it was HUGE!

yea, got to factor in the bone etc - so it works out about £1 per 100g

might as well get the packs as there is no way you can carve it as thin as it should be - but it looks good and it will give the cat something to lick at

Halal?

You have a turkey flag avatar, which raises my suspicion...
