How to unwrap it - and eat it as if recently hand carved by our Master Carvers in Jabugo - Before opening the bag, submerge it for a few seconds in warm water to more easily separate the rashers. Once open, the ham should remain on the plate at room temperature for about 15 minutes before eating to reach the ideal 24ºC.
Using your fingers is allowed and, in fact,
that's how you should eat it and how it tastes best.
