Spicy Sobrasada de Mallorca - Spreadable chorizo - 375g

Regular price £6.99

Tax included.

Sobrasada is the national sausage of the Balearic Islands; the climate is too humid for an air-dried chorizo so the sausage-meat is made into a soft, spreadable chorizo, often spread on toast for breakfast; great for sandwiches! This is a slightly spicy or picante version. 

Sobrasada is a raw, cured sausage from the Balearic Islands made with ground pork, paprika and salt and other spices. Sobrasada are traditional Balearic meat products prepared in the laborious but festive rites that still mark the autumn and winter pig slaughter known as a matança (in Spanish, matanza) in Majorca and Ibiza. The chemical principle that makes sobrassada is the dehydration of meat under certain weather conditions (high humidity and mild cold) which are typical of the late Balearic autumn.
