It will interest you
Within the range of the famous sausages of our gastronomy, chorizo undoubtedly occupies a very special place. To sum up, chorizo is made with the highest quality lean pork parts, seasonings and different spice, and just like lomo or jamón, chorizo needs time, although this case the dry curing period is much shorter.
The characteristic red colour of the chorizo is due to the paprika, an essential ingredient in the preparation of the coveted sausage. In fact, this characteristic is what makes the Spanish chorizo a standard and a unique product in the world's gastronomy, the taste and color make it different from other sausages and chorizos from other places.
In Enrique Tomás you will find a high-quality product with pieces and slices of Chorizo Ibérico Bellota, made with acorn-fed Iberian pork, which is used to make the exquisite Pata Negra hams. As well as Iberian Chorizo, a product obtained from pigs of the Iberian breed but whose diet has not included acorns.
Those pigs that are destined to give Iberian acorn-fed hams make the final part of their fattening during the Montanera: From November onwards, when it gets cold in the mountains and the acorns fall naturally because they are ripe, the pigs who want to finish fattening naturally are left free on the farm. For a maximum of 4 months, the pigs will eat all the acorns they can find, red fruits and lots of grass. They will walk a lot and drink a lot of water. When they have increased by 50% the weight with which they entered the pastureland, they will be ready to provide the wonderful Jamón Ibérico de Bellota.
Pedroches Valley - Córdoba
Córdoba is the youngest area in the production of quality Jamón Ibérico. Known as"Jamón de Pedroches" (Pedroches ham), these products are full of wonderful pastures where the pigs have been fed, resulting in a different kind of Jamón Ibérico, with a chilled, tasty, intense and very pleasant flavour. Pedroches ham has been awarded as the most exclusive Jamón on several occasions and, in fact, the famous Jamón Glamuros 2017-18 is of this origin.
The Spanish gastronomy is world famous and its sausages, together with the Jamón Ibérico, are one of the protagonists of this popularity. Each region and town has its own products and, above all, the traditional preparation and local flavours are valued: chorizos, fuet, salchichón, chistorra and other wonders that many of us could not do without.
When we speak of sausage we refer to a processing technique, therefore, what is known as cold meat is not sausage, nor can our beloved jamón be considered as such. To make a good sausage you need meat from different parts of the pig (lean areas and fat) and seasonings that can vary according to each cook and/or product to be prepared. Once all the ingredients have been combined, the mixture is stuffed into a natural or artificial casing, as the case may be, and allowed to cure for as long as it needs to acquire its colour, flavour and texture.
