The Acorn-fed Loin 100% Iberian folded of Montesano is elaborated with loins of 100% Iberian pigs. It is a specialty of Extremadura, one of its prized treasures of gastronomy. A unique and exceptional product with a strong taste of acorns, and the flavor of the Extremadura pasture. The loin is made in a completely handmade way following a recipe from the south of Extremadura. It is marinated without paprika and only with a light seasoning of salt and slight amounts of garlic, pepper and additives. At the time of stuffing, the whole piece is folded transversely in half, which is why it's called folded, and is lightly coated with lard, then stuffed into a larger diameter casing, according to the size of the folded piece and tied with string in several parts of the piece so that the folded piece is melted into one. Subsequently, and due to its size, it requires more curing time than a normal piece, which, in the case of Montesano's acorn-fed folded loin, lasts more than 7 months. Months in which the artisan pork butchers of Montesano, connoisseurs of the recipe and the product, watch over each piece with care and attention, adjusting the strings that surround it in the traditional way. As a result, a natural Iberian product is obtained, without paprika, which allows to better capture the exquisite flavor of the Iberian pork loin from Extremadura. The characteristics of flavor and aroma from the acorn, together with the curing process, make the Extremadura folded loin a highly coveted product by the gourmet sector.
