Characteristics of sobrassada from Mallorca, "the spreadable chorizo":
As you see, the sobrassada is an atypical cold meat, many people call it "Spreadable chorizo". Although the base of this always is the same, depending on how it is elaborated we will can differentiate between one type and the other. For this reason, we are going to differentiate between the animal breed, its curing and the condiment used.
Curing of sobrassada from Mallorca:
The sobrassada is individually stuffed in the natural intestine. The intestine can weigh up to 2 kg, although the more usual format is between 500 and 600 gr. It will depend on whether it will be sold stuffed or in jars.
Once the sobrassada from Mallorca is stuffed, we will proceed to its curing. The curing time will be at least one month. Unlike other cold meats such as chorizo, loin or Iberian spicy sausage which have a longer curing time. Being the sobrassada cured for one month, we are going to obtain this juicy, spreadable and tender texture of this peculiar one.
During the curing, the sobrassada is going to acquire the characteristics and shades that make it particular: the texture of the breakable skin and that characteristic taste. In addition, during this curing phase of the cold meat, the necessary cleaning and care practices permitted by the PGI sobrassada from Mallorca are going to be applied.
Pork breed with which sobrassada is elaborated:
When it comes to making sobrassada, there are three types of pork breeds: the black pork native from Mallorca, the white and the Iberian ones.
As it is a cold meat made with finely minced and spiced meat, the difference in the genetics of each animal will give it one flavor or another. The most appreciated is the Iberian breed and the black pork (porc negre), as the genetics of the latter has a more intense flavor and it is richer in oleic acid and unsaturated fats.
Condiment used in its elaboration:
The sobrassada is characterized by its deep red color. It is due to the paprika mixed with all the ingredients. Depending on the type of paprika used in its elaboration, a more neutral or spicy taste is going to be obtained.
One of the more usual modalities when it comes to consuming the sobrasada from Mallorca is the mixing with sugar or with honey. It is a very pleasant contrast. The great popularity of this product has led the manufacturers themselves to make sobrassada with honey, a sweet sobrassada ready to eat.
