The Spanish are experts in curing ham and in Spain the mangalica meat is treated for two years before being put onto the market and sold as Monte Nevado Ham. Thanks to Mangalica & Társai Húspatika you don't have to travel all the way to Spain, nor do you have to wait for the annual Mangalica Festival to taste the flavorful mangalica cured ham. Other mangalica products to try are the tasty sausages and salamis.
