Cured chorizo is a firm, intensely seasoned pork sausage synonymous with Spain. Unlike fresh, cooking chorizo, dried chorizo does not need to be cooked. What distinguishes dry-cured chorizo is that it is left to hang for a period of time until air-cured and harder in texture.
Flavoured with smoked paprika, or pimenton, as it is known, is Spain, cured chorizo’s distinctive flavour makes it a great snack or enjoyed with tapas. Cured varieties can be hot or mild, finely or coarsely cut - all of which are delicious. Spanish chorizo can be bought as a whole sausage or finely sliced for use in all your favourite recipes.
Made in a variety of styles and sizes, cured chorizo sausage is very versatile and can be used in a range of recipes such as rice dishes, pasta and tapas dishes.
