Bacon makes everything tastes better. Whether or not this statement is true doesn’t change this simple truth: the bacon craze is sweeping the nation. It’s hard to watch ANY food related show without hearing some remark on the glory of pig. However, if you’re real serious about pig then there is only one answer: Spain. A trip to Spain for a pig-lover is the equivalent to a trip to Japan for a sushi lover. They are SERIOUS about their pig!

Cured ham, in particular is one Spanish specialty. Locals have been curing ham for thousands of years, and last year alone Spain sold over 40 million hams. The pride and joy of Spain comes with their Iberian pigs. The secret is in the diet. The Iberian pigs have long feasted on the local acorns, which are known to give the pigs a nutty, unique flavor. The acorns are also filled with oleic acids, a healthy fat which is believed to further intensify the flavors of the Iberian pigs.
