Salchichón de Bellota Ibérico by Dehesa Cordobesa
Salchichón is a dry-cured sausage similar to Italian salami. Coarsely chopped Ibérico pork meat is mixed with pork fat and spices to create a deeply savory, satisfying treat. This Spanish summer sausage is “de Bellota 100% Ibérico,” meaning it is produced with 100% purebred, acorn-fed Ibérico pigs. This is the highest possible classification of Ibérico meat, and quite rare. The pigs spend their last 3-4 months eating acorns until they reach the correct weight. They roam freely within the nearly 1 million acres of dehesa (oak forest) in the Valle de Pedroches in Córdoba. This dehesa is notable for its Encina Oak trees, which produce acorns considered to be the sweetest in Spain, giving the meat its unparalleled sweet and savory flavor.
