Chorizo From Spain
Spanish sausage: Chorizo
Chorizo is the most typical and traditional sausage from Spain and we could even call it “the Spanish sausages king”. Spanish sausage is one of the things that you always have at home in Spain and here in The Netherlands I continue with the tradition. It is a product from Spain that I always have on my kitchen here in The Netherlands ready to use.
There are many chorizos from Spain produced with great quality. Each city and even each house in the rural areas has their own recipe.
It is prepared mainly with pig meat, with spices and been the most important, the paprika (Pimentón), that makes it become with this characteristic red color.

I become nostalgic remembering when I was a kid, going to school with a “bocadillo de chorizo” (Spanish Sausage Sandwich) to eat it on the break. That was the typical bocadillo in the schools. You could know that many kids were eating the same as you, because of the strong smell. It is weird if you are a Spanish kid and you had never eaten a spanish sausage Sandwich.
Also, in every kid birthday party, there were the sausage sandwiches, it was a must in every Spanish kids’ birthday party.
Here in The Netherlands, we organize dinner with our Spanish friends and we taste Spanish food and this sausage is always there.
