$1,300 Easter Ham

Talk about splurging on an Easter feast. At La Tienda, a Virginia-based online purveyor of products from Spain, the holiday ham is taken to new heights. That’s because the retailer offers one of the widest selections of Ibérico hams — the special and superexpensive variety that is sourced from a unique, black-colored breed of pig that roams the south and southwest regions of Spain and is then dry-cured for up to four years. La Tienda’s priciest Ibérico is the Bellota one, made from free-range, acorn-fed pork; a bone-in, 15-pound ham runs $1,290. ‘It’s on par with caviar or truffles,’ says La Tienda CEO Tim Harris.” w/ photos
