Culture of the Alpujarra
Respecting the guidelines set by nature, we manage to obtain exquisite hams and sausages, in harmony with our environment and the resources it offers us. Without haste, giving each piece the time it needs. Adding value to the agri-food chain, through a clean, honest and respectful process.
The Alpujarreña gastronomy is a living example of the way of life that families had in this region. When our grandparents started, in 1958, in many houses of the Alpujarra they fed themselves self-sufficiently, from seasonal products obtained from the land and animals, and that were maintained thanks to natural conservation techniques. The slaughter was a ritual that was celebrated every year, families gathered to collaborate in the preparation of sausages and salting of hams, and thus filled the pantry for the whole year.
Today, at Muñoz Jamones y Embutidos, we continue to understand the elaboration of our products as a ritual, following the recipes and know-how of those who taught us in their day, having learned before life itself. A culture transmitted from generation to generation. We continue where we started, in Yegen. Here time is measured differently, we let life set the pace, giving value to every moment lived and being grateful for the fortune of being able to stay in this place. We are waiting for you in this privileged environment!
