The Fermin iberico de bellota hams are here in New York Harbor -- so close but oh so far.
As with any new product the federal authorities are thoroughly vetting it to make sure that all is in order in terms of their interpretation of United States regulations and policy.
This is why from the beginning of this last evolution we have been vague as to the timing of the ham's availability. It is not that we have been coy, but rather we do not want to raise false expectations. Although I must admit to feelings such as a child feels on a long car trip when he asks, "Are we there yet?"
We are poised to ship. But they say patience is a virtue.
After a ten year wait, a few more days do not matter.
