sales and an interrelated economic crisis mean there’s now a serious surplus of the pricey and very delicious Jamón Ibérico
. The cost of these tasty, aged pieces of pig
has dropped by 50 percent according to the Telegraph
, which notes that: “Spain is groaning under a glut of ham after Christmas sales of one its most celebrated products plummeted with a crash in demand for traditional gift hampers.”
The benefits extend to those of us in the United States, too: Tienda.com is selling bone-in Jamón Ibérico hams for half off, due to “a potential trade war that never materialized.” Now a mere $400 is all that it takes to put 14 to 16 pounds of the good stuff on your kitchen counter.
