Chorizo is a classic ingredient in Spanish cooking. Our Chorizo is made from free-range West Country pork and is heavily seasoned with Spanish smoked paprika (single Estate, artisan produced), Spanish purple garlic (for a truly authentic flavour), and cayenne pepper for heat. It has been fermented and then partially air-dried before we pack the sausage to prevent further drying. This makes it perfect for cooking (or eating as it is); the sausage still retains some moisture so it is not too dry and crumbly but the highly flavoured fat renders very quickly in cooking - perfect for a paella or pizza.
It is best described as on the 'hotter' side of medium heat. These are made by hand using natural casings so weights may vary from chorizo to chorizo.
