Fuet with pepper - 200gr
It will interest you
If you live in Spain and know the rich gastronomy of the country, you may have no problem identifying any of these three products, but there are still some who do not distinguish the differences between them. We begin by clarifying then, that these are three handmade sausages that make us fall in love with their flavour, texture and aroma.
Size: These three products are stuffed into a casing, which is usually pork, and the size of the casing differs in each of them. The Salchichón is the thickest, then we have the Longaniza which is usually a little flatter and slightly oval, to finally reach the fuet which is much narrower, being the smallest of the three.
Curing: Another important aspect of our sausages that is directly related to size, the larger the product, the longer it takes to cure.
Ingredients: Although the three sausages are produced from lean pork, ibérico de bellota, depending on the particular product, the ingredients make an important difference and, in addition to this, the artisan production process of each one. The Salchichón and the Longaniza are usually similar, leaner and peppery, unlike the fuet which, in its most traditional version, does not usually include this spice.
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.
