Jamón Ibérico de bellota. At $169 a pound, this is definitely a treat in this day and age. Gastrodamus says, "Let a piece sit on your tongue for a little bit to really taste the different flavors. The acorn flavor is in the fat. Should be thinly sliced with a knife, not with a machine." [via The Serious Eats Flickr Pool]
