Semi-dry texture with deep red-orange color and some marbling.
Meaty and unctuous, with a mild spiciness.
To create this standout chorizo, coarsely chopped Ibérico pork meat is mixed with pork fat and spices to give it a of a kick. Ibérico pigs roam on almost one million acres of Dehesa (oak forest) in the Valle de Los Pedroches in the province of Cordoba in Andalucia, Spain. Each pig has almost 2 acres to itself and feasts on acorns from Encina Oak trees, which are considered to be the sweetest in Spain. All Dehesa Cordobesa® products are de Bellota 100% Ibérico, which means the 100% purebred Ibérico pigs finish their lives eating acorns until they reach the correct weight for slaughter (min 3-4 months). The fat in the meat is high in oleic acid and Omega-3 fatty acids, both thought to help decrease bad cholesterol.
Store in a cool, dry place. Trim casing before sampling.
Slice thinly and serve at room temperature. A classic addition to a tapas plate, with membrillo, manchego, and marcona almonds. Perfect for a cheese plate or for use in cooking.
