Jamón Serrano is a type of spanish dry-cured, uncooked ham, similar to italian prosciutto.
Nowadays, it is one of my favourite tastes, though I did not expect that when I saw it for first time. ''How people can eat that fatty, disgusting legs?!''- I asked myself.
Much more expensive version, made from black pigs is called jamón ibérico (pictured).
