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; 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.
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. You will receive a minimum weight of 100g (the pack usually contains one sausage but will occasionally have two if the weight of a single chorizo is under 100g)
