This dry cured sausage has been flavored with paprika to give it a bit of a kick. Coarsely chopped Ibérico pork meat is mixed with pork fat to create a sausage superb for tapas or cooking.

Bellota (acorn) means the pigs have been on the plains eating acorns for the last 3 or 4 months of their lives and when they reach the desired weight for slaughter have not eaten any other grains.

Our producer in El Valle de Los Pedroches in Córdoba has 400,000 hectares of Holm oak forest. This native species of oaks produce unique acorns considered to be the sweetest in Spain. It is here they allow their 100% purebred Ibérico pigs to roam freely. During autumn and winter, the pigs feed on acorns, which contributes to the meat’s juicy flavor and marbled appearance. The meat is dried and cured to develop its unparalleled flavor. This is terrior in its finest element. Each package is 70 grams
