Ham and charcuterie

And which part of the pork you'd
like to try next?
The truth is that the phrase is very powerful, what can you say about the pig that you have not eaten before? and is that in Spain the pig takes advantage of everything, as some say, "even the gait". In Spain many breeds of pig are raised, although the main and most popular are the Iberian breed and the Duroc breed of white pig. The differences between these two races are very large, starting with their food and breeding until the elaboration of hams and sausages.
While it is true that among all the foods obtained from pork, the serrano ham or Iberian ham is the one that first comes to mind. There is an infinity of sausages just as good as we normally consume in our usual way. If something is so good, why are we going to give up eating it? We could divide the food we get from pork into three groups: on the one hand fresh meat for consumption, hams and shoulders and finally sausages.
The ham and the Iberian or Serrano shoulder have a longer elaboration process than the other products we obtain from the pig. While a iberian shoulder has a maximum cure of 15 and an serrano one of 9 -12 months (depending on the weight) a quality serrano ham will be suitable for consumption after 18 to 24 months. This process in the case of Iberian ham can reach up to 50 months, as is the case of 100% Iberian acorn-fed Iberian ham. On the other hand, sausages are made faster and except for pork loin, they are usually mixtures of various ingredients.
The sausage, sausage, black pudding, sausage are popular foods that are chosen when mixing pork lean with spices and fat. The quality and price of this food will be marked by the amount of fat they put in the sausage. The sausages of Gastronomic Spain are of the highest quality ensuring that they have the right percentage of fat so that they have an adequate taste.
The truth is that the ham and good sausages are usually the protagonists of the hangouts with friends and family gatherings. Iberian chorizo and blood sausage are usually found in all refrigerators and pantries, along with cured or frying chorizo and other delicacies such as Manchego cheese, olives. Don't worry if you live outside of Spain, with Gastronomic Spain you will be able to enjoy all the Spanish food you like best in your pantry. "Do not miss the ham, or the black pudding of Burgos, or the companion, or a good sausage for macaroni or that fuet that you sneak up every time you visit the fridge and think that nobody finds out ..."
