 World's Costliest Ham Available at the Food Hall in Selfridges
The world's most expensive ham is up for grabs at the food hall in Selfridges in London's Oxford Street.

The leg of Iberico ham, priced at 1,800 pounds, weighs seven kilos and comes with a DNA certificate as a proof of authenticity.

It has been put on the market in a hand-made wooden box wrapped in an apron made by one of Spain's most exclusive tailors.

Andrew Cavanna, Fresh Food Buyer at Selfridges, praised the product that was salted after slaughter and cured for three years before hitting the shelves.

"Connoisseurs will appreciate the melt-in-the-mouth texture of this truly amazing Spanish ham. The leg may seem to have a large price tag but when you think about the amount of care taken from breeding right through to the curing, it is actually amazing value," Sky News quoted Cavanna as saying.

Cavanna added: "Every single gram will be savoured as one of life's incredible gourmet luxuries."
