Cured ham and other cured pork products such as chorizo, pork loin and sausages, were originally elaborated at traditional celebrations called matanzas (slaughter) and this still happens in some villages.
Nowadays, cured ham is one of the most popular products of Spain, it can be found in every house and every time friends get together. You can eat it on a toast for lunch, in a sandwich, with bread and tomato, in an omelette, anywhere your imagination can take you.
