It will interest you
Salchichón is a type of dry cured sausage typical of several European countries and which stands out for its traditional character. In its preparation, high quality meat is used, Iberica de Bellota if it is the case, together with a delicate mixture of spice in which the black peppercorns stand out, giving the product its characteristic aroma and flavour.
The sausage is stuffed into a pork intestine and is usually large and thick in size. As for the curing time, this is usually defined by the size of the piece, the larger and wider the piece, the longer it takes to cure. In any case, the most important thing about the sausages and the salchichón that we sell at Enrique Tomás is that they are made according to artisan methods under the strictest quality controls. The result is obvious to the eye and the palate.
Despite being a simple product, the salchichón is unique, with a delicious taste and with an ideal presentation for all kinds of evenings, from an elegant snack dinner to the filling for children's sandwiches.
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.
