TYPES OF HOMEMADE WHITE-PIG CHORIZO

We are going to differentiate through the curation process and the use given to the chorizo. The chorizo serrano tends to be eaten with bread and not cooked. While the fresh chorizo tends to be used in typical Spanish dishes and is cooked, as in the case of fried chorizo, of which, the most popular one is the grilled chorizo o barbequed chorizo.

The chorizo fromLeón is a homemade chorizo, which tends to be bought as a whole piece. The chorizo sarta from León, spicy or sweet, is the most popular. A chorizo from León has a thickness of 3 to 5 cm. It is presented in a curved form, which is why it is also denominated as horseshoe chorizo.

The Chistorra is a very thin fresh chorizo from Navarra and is a to-fry chorizo. This fried Spanish chorizo is perfect for pinchos and traditional dishes such as fried eggs with chistorra and chips. The chistorra has a very affordable price. One of the simplest elaborations is the fried chistorra or chistorra with wine.
The chistorra is a type of cold meat from Navarra, made from lean fresh minced pork. Additionally, during its elaboration, garlic, salt and, especially, paprika1, which gives it the characteristic reddish colour to the chistorra, as well as chorizo, are added.
Chistorra differs from chorizo by its size, since the chistorra is thinner and longer. The different spices used, as well as the curing and drying time, help to differentiate them even more. The chistorra, being smaller in size, has a shorter time, both for curing and drying.
Normally, the chistorra is eaten roasted or fired, accompanied by other dishes, or as an appetizer. Among the most popular recipes we find, chistorra with wine, chistorra with cider or broken eggs with chistorra, although the chistorra sandwich or omelette are also in high demand.
The grilled chorizo originates in Latin America, but nowadays it is elaborated and consumed all around the world. Our grilled chorizo comes from León and is made of lean pork meat, garlic and salt.
Normally, no paprika is added in South American countries, but in Spain, we do not recognise a chorizo without that characteristic colour of Spanish chorizos.
The grilled chorizo is exclusively used to be fried or grilled, hence its name. Although it is also known as Creole chorizo or Argentine chorizo.
Chorizo from Pamplona

In addition, this Navarrese cold meat is stuffed in a natural casing since when cured, it must have a minimum diameter of 40 mm.
