0 533 Home

Selfridges in London, UK has stated that the priciest ham leg in the world can be purchased at its store in Oxford street.

The Iberico ham leg has a price tag of £1,800.
 
Flavour
It started with Manuel Maldonado, a pig farmer and ham expert who selected 50 pigs that were reared in Extremadura, Spain - the pigs were permitted to roam fields and ate acorns and roots in order for the ham to have a specific flavour.
 
After being slaughtered the ham was salted and cured for three years.
 
The leg weighs seven kilogams and comes with a DNA certificate for authenticity.
