JAMÓN FAT HAS A SPECIAL PLACE IN THE SPANISH KITCHEN. IT IS TREASURED AS A SOURCE OF FLAVOUR: EVERYTHING A PIG ATE IN ITS LIFE IS CONCENTRATED IN ITS FAT. IF THE PIG WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO FEAST ON ACORNS, ITS FAT WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL NUTTINESS AND BE MOST SOUGHT AFTER. PARTICULARLY FATTY PIECES OF JAMÓN ARE PROCURED BY HOME COOKS FOR CERTAIN DISHES. THIS IS ONE OF THEM — A HEARTY SALAD THAT COMBINES THE SWEETNESS OF COOKED ONIONS, THE EARTHINESS OF POTATOES AND THE RICH NUTTINESS OF JAMÓN FAT.
