Pata Negra, the Spanish term which literally means "black hoof", refers to Iberico pig. The oak woodlands of Western Andalucia offer the perfect habitat of Pata Negra and the Sierra de Huelva produces some of the best Pata Negra in Spain. Pata Negra is made into a unique cured ham of Spain known as Jamon Iberico. Likewise, it is the source of other delicious cured meats such as Lomo Embuchado, and Morcon.
