Iberico Paleta

Pork shoulder, dry-cured in the same way as jamon or prosciutto. Paleta is a bit less rich than jamon, but it is jam-packed with deep meaty flavor. 

Iberico pigs have been raised on the Iberian peninsula of Spain for centuries, and Jamon Iberico is beloved throughout the world as a particularly delicious and high quality cured ham.  Now, American-born Iberian pigs roam freely over acres of fields and woods in Georgia.
