Description

Our 1kg Cooking Chorizo is made in La Rioja by Martinez Somalo, a chorizo producer with over 100 years experience.

This delicious chorizo sausages have been semi-cured for only four days. The result in a softer sausage that retains moisture whilst becoming crispy – perfect for cooking! The key to a good Chorizo is Spanish Paprika, we use just the right amount of premium quality paprika to give our 1Kg Cooking Chorizo its signature taste.

Our 1Kg Cooking Chorizo comes with a three month shelf life. It is a very versatile ingredient to use in all types of cooking and cooking methods. The Sausage has a strong colour with soft texture and a spicy and aromatic taste. Originally, Riojan Chorizo use to be produced in the mountain valleys of La Rioja due to the climate conditions which were perfect for the curing of Chorizo Sausage. Since 1990 Riojan Chorizo has the I.G.P. accreditation in order to protect its production.

Spanish Chorizo is made from coarsely chopped pork and pork fat, seasoned with smoked pimenton and salt. It is generally classed as either Chorizo Picante (spicy) or Chorizo Dulce (sweet), depending upon the type of smoked paprika used. There are hundreds of regional varieties of Spanish Chorizo, both smoked and unsmoked, containing garlic, herbs and other ingredients. Chorizo comes in short, long, hard or soft varieties; the leaner varieties are suited to being eaten at room temperature as an appetizer or tapas, whereas the fattier versions are generally used for cooking. Depending on the variety and curing, Chorizo can be eaten sliced without further cooking or barbecued, fried or baked alongside other foods. It is also an ingredient used in several dishes where it accompanies beans, such as Fabada or Cocido Madrileno. These dishes normally carry other pork meat cuts such as Tocino (cured bacon) and Morcilla (blood sausage) called Sacramentos (known as the trimmings) to accompany cooked chorizo.

Our 1Kg cooking chorizo is perfect grilled in pasta dishes, salads, sandwiches or tapas.
