Morcilla de Burgos
The traditional Morcilla Burgalesa is made without meat. The main ingredients are onions, rice, lard, blood and spices. The general consensus is that the sausage should be bland, greasy and spicy. Burgos is a city in northern Spain and the historic capital of Castile. Classic morcillas de Burgos are made with the locally grown Horcal onion which is the main ingredient. It is believed that this onion is what gives the sausage its character.
