For a long time I've wanted to try this. Today I stopped by a local gourmet deli to pick up an EVOO refill and noticed it in the case, and got a few slices and a baguette to go. At home I found the ham was impossibly stiff, kind of like cardboard. The flavor was wonderful ---- where it was chewable (not all of it). Some knowledgeable chowhound, is this the way Jamon Iberico always is? Or was it not what it should have been?
