Iberian sausage

The Iberian sausage is part of the tradition of our country and is part of our most deeply rooted culinary history. It is another part of the Iberian pig that has contributed so much to our gastronomy. It could be one of our best-known gastronomic products in the world since it is, without a doubt, a typical product consumed by previous generations and very much to the taste also of the current ones. Therefore, we can say without falling into exaggerations that it is a cultural and culinary reference of the Iberian Peninsula.

In addition, the Iberian sausage is a product that can be consumed anywhere due to its easy preparation: at home for almost any occasion, in the sandwich of the children's school, on an excursion to the countryside or anywhere, even in space, as did the astronaut Pedro Duque, who on one of his trips brought Iberian chorizo or Jesús Calleja, that carries Iberian sausage and chorizo promoting its beloved community of Castilla León.

Among all the variety of products of our producers, we have selected the best 100% Iberian sausages, such as the Iberian loin of acorn, the Iberian sausage of acorn and the Iberian chorizo of acorn. Among them, 100% Iberian acorn-fed loin cane is one of the most appreciated products by sausage lovers.

In the same way as with ham and shoulders, which are not all Iberian, not all sausage is Iberian. It can only be said that a sausage is Iberian when at least 50% of the pig breed is Iberian.

Differences between sausage and cold cuts

Although they are often used synonymously, of course there are differences between the two. The cold meat is a meat derivative that includes another ingredient: starch. Depending on the quality of the cold cut, it will contain more or less meat. The lower the quality, it will contain a lower volume of meat and, therefore, it will have less nutritional value. On the other hand, a sausage, since it uses for its elaboration the traditional technique that we will now explain, will contain a mixture of meats seasoned with select spices to give it those aromas and flavors so recognizable and specific, that introduced in a natural or artificial casing, will provide flavors impossible to achieve with artificial products or other substitutes. So, made this distinction, we must know that if we want to buy Iberian sausage, buy Iberian chorizo and lomo embuchado are sausages and not cold cuts.

Elaboration process of the Iberian sausage

In the elaboration process, the ingredients such as paprika, garlic, salt and smoking of Iberian products allow the meat obtained in the slaughter to be consumed throughout the year in the form of any type of Iberian sausage.

The process of making Iberian chorizo and salchichón is carried out through traditional processes providing that flavor so difficult to forget. The steps are as follows:

  • Minced meat
  • Mixed and kneaded with spices. Of course, with the prominence of the Pimentón de la Vera!
  • Rest of the meat
  • Stuffed from the dough into the gut and tied.
  • Healing.

Conservation of Iberian sausages

Traditionally, food has been preserved thanks to salt, hence the curious superstition that throwing salt brings bad luck, since it could complicate the way to preserve food for consumption during the year. Later, with fire and smoke, the chances of preserving meat increased by smoking the meat. Currently, sausages are prepared vacuum-packed to preserve their nutritional and flavor qualities and are served both in whole and divided pieces to facilitate consumption. But it is very important when consuming them to remember that, to obtain their full flavor, they must be removed from the container about thirty minutes before in order to reach room temperature.
