Help on Jamon Iberico

jimtak | Dec 18, 2009 08:07 AM

I just received a long desired Jamon Iberico, and was shocked to find that this arrived, labeled Jamon Iberico, but with white hooves, not the "pata negro". In Spain, I have seen these black feet on the hams hanging in the shops and restaurants, and on the hams in their carving holders. so that makes me suspect.
No word, yet, from the on-line purveyor, whom I have dealt with for many years.
Does anyone out there have any reason why an authentic Jamon Iberico might have white hooves?
