I’m grateful that this pig died for me

Thank you so much.  You were delicious.

Yes, you’re reading the price right on that, $169.99 per pound.  But it is so fucking worth it.  I’m grateful to my father-in-law who bought this and left it in my fridge.

I still have the “lesser” cousin Jamon Bellota Pelota (which is a bargain at only $119.99 per pound) in my fridge, waiting to be eaten.

If you ever come across these guys in a market just ask for a slice or two.  And don’t chew, just let the meat and fat dissolve in your mouth.
