Bellota Ibérico Cured Loin Huelva - 250gr
It will interest you
As the common saying goes, "every part of the pig is used up" and without a doubt, the loin of pork is one of the noblest products obtained from the pig. This delicious sausage is a delicacy that is usually not missing on the table during special occasions and one of the indispensable components of a good Christmas hamper.
The sausage known as lomo is made from salt-cured pork loin, but unlike pork legs, which are also salt-cured, it is seasoned with garlic, oregano and paprika. The loin is "stuffed" into a pig's intestine for dry curing.
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.
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.
