Jamón Ibérico de bellota

There's nothing quite like jamón Ibérico de bellota. The meat comes from black Spanish pigs that run happily around the hills and eat acorns until they become the some of the most expensive cured meat in the world. The meat has a nutty, sweet quality unlike any other that's catching on around the world...the NY Times just covered it, and there's even a jamon flavored lays potato chip available in Spain. I'm just happy it can be found throughout Manhattan, including at my go-to place for all edible things Spanish, Despana.
