Melon con Jamón

3. Cut the serrano into strips.
4. Wrap the melon with a strip of serrano and use a toothpick to hold the ham in place.

In 1956 Fermin Martin and his wife, Victoriana Gomez, started the company Fermin. For more than 60 years now the company has been raising and producing premium 100% Iberico meat on their farm and pastures in Spain.
Iberico is a unique, specialty breed of pig bred from the wild boars of the Mediterranean basin. What makes this breed so special and desirable for quality meat products is their ability to develop healthy fat throughout their muscles, producing a beautiful marbling.
These Iberico pigs are raised free ranging in meadows dotted with oaks trees and carpeted with cool grass. The grass and oaks on this idyllic landscape provide pasture and acorns on which these pigs feast. The Iberico pigs will eat 6-10 kilograms of acorns and 3-4 kilograms of natural pastures, doubling their weight. The high acorn diet adds a buttery flavor, delicate texture, and strong coloring and aroma to the meat. The active free range lifestyle also helps marble the Iberico pigs' muscles with fat by walking up to 15 kilometres a day. This develops strong, finely marbled muscles with great texture, flavor, and juiciness for the final product.
The perfectly raised pork is then cured to make ham. The meat is first salted for 3-4 months to preserve the meat. Once the meat is thoroughly dehydrated all the way through, it is transferred to a drying and maturing area for aging. The temperature and humidity is controlled through old fashioned opening and closing of windows partnered with the local climate. The warm days cause the fat from the meat to sweat. The cool nights then concentrate the flavors. The pieces of meat will loose 30 to 40% of their weight during this process, locking in and super concentrating the meats' flavors. Depending on the type of meat being produced, pieces are aged for 10 up to 36 months. A ham master then inspects the final product's look, smell, and feel to determine when it has perfected and is ready for packaging.
In addition to traditional ham, Fermin also creates exquisite serrano, chorizo, and salchichón from their Iberico meats.
Experience traditional Spanish ham that's a cut above the rest with Fermin's luxurious 100% Iberico meat.
Fermin meat is featured in 5280 Gourmet gifts such as the Big European Charcuterie and Cheese Baskets and Epicurean Charcuterie Basket with Spanish Iberico Salumi Baskets. Fermin ham, serrano, and salchichon are also available on 5280 Gourmet as an add-on so you can mix and match it to other gift baskets.

The cheese board at any occasion is both a visual and taste journey. A beautifully curated and arranged board can wow you guests. So how do you create the perfect cheese board?
The cheese board is the canvas to your arrangement. Wood and stone boards are popular choices as they give a nice polished background which the colorful cheeses, meats, and fruits can visually pop on.
The board should also be large enough to hold all of the food. A platter too small or too large can look too crowded or sparse.
You'll also want to provide a knife for each cheese on the board. Cheese markers is also a nice touch so guests can know what each option is.
There are thousands and thousands of cheese. For a well rounded cheese board, you will want to pick a variety of textures and flavors from soft to hard and mild to sharp. You can also mix up the type of milk by including some goat or sheep cheese. Read our blog Know Your Cheeses to learn more about the different types of cheese.
Having a wide variety on the board allows one to explore cheese pairings. And in case someone doesn't like one flavor, there are others to try.
The cheeses should be served at room temperature, so let them sit out for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Accompany your cheese selection with an equally varying array of extras. Add in bread, sweet, and savory foods of different colors and textures to add even more depth for the senses to enjoy.
- Breads - toasted baguette, crusty sourdough bread, etc.
- Bread Sticks
- Dried Fruits - cranberries, cherries, figs, apricots, strawberries, mangoes, etc.
- Fresh Fruits - grapes, berries, cherries, melons, etc.
- Fruit Preserves
- Cured Meats - prosciutto, salami, chorizo, jerky, etc.
- Marinated Olives
The arrangement of your cheeses should be a guide. It should tell someone in what order things should be tried and how to try them.
Place the cheeses down in a clockwise arrangement from softest to hardest in texture. But if you have included a blue cheese, place it at the very end. This will show that the order in which the cheese should be tasted, from the mildest to the most intense flavor.
Next, display the cheese in the way they should be eaten. Cut a small wedge out of a mini wheel. Slice up some of the semi-firm cheese wedge into triangle slices. Chunk some cheese off the tip of a firm cheese. This will show how each cheese should be cut. Then leave knives off to the side so guests can cut more cheese as the blocks are consumed.
Space the cheeses out so you have room between them. Sprinkle in pockets of the extras in between the cheese to fill in the rest of the board.
Place a small serving bowl and spoon on the board to serve the liquid foods such as preserves and honeys.

Red Camper's preserves capture the flavors of a summertime picnic in a jar. The fresh, fruity spreads are perfect for toasts and cheeses, but another great use is for glazing. Here is a recipe for a Peach Glazed Salmon using Red Camper's Pueblo Chile Peach Deliciousness preserve, one of their new 2019 flavors.
Preheat your oven to 450° F and place your salmon fillets in a well greased baking sheet.
Melt the Pueblo Chile Peach Deliciousness, butter, and brown sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted and the combination is smooth, turn off the heat. Immediately add the soy sauce, mustard, olive oil, ginger, salt, and pepper and mix well. allow your glaze to cool for 5 minutes.
While you're letting the glaze cool you can dice your peaches. Cutting each slice into thirds makes for good size peach chunks.
Brush half of your glaze onto the salmon, and stir the remaining into your diced peaches. Pour your glazed peaches directly over the salmon fillets. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove the salmon from the oven, change the heat setting to broil on high, and move your oven rack so it is 4-5 inches below the heat source. Return the baking sheet to the oven and allow to broil for five minutes until the glaze is set and the peaches are browned.
Serve your salmon over a bed of white rice and enjoy your sweet, savory, healthy meal!
