How is the Spicy Potato Sausage prepared?
Potato sausage is prepared in a traditional, homemade way as in Extremadura. The selected pork meat is rich in natural fat, the potato and spicy meat are added, kneading them in a wrap-around manner until they are completely integrated into a paste.
After kneading, the paste is left to rest for a few hours so that flavours concentrate, and then it is placed in the sausage casing, pushing and compacting it to remove air. It is then left to dry hunging, free of humidity.
The spicy potato sausage is an explosion of flavours on the palate, a true gustatory spectacle for those who enjoy sausages with a sparkling touch of spiciness, which does not opaque but enhances the taste of the pig, making it a delicacy.
