Morcilla Serrana

Morcilla Serrana, also called fat blood sausage (morcilla gorda) is a blood sausage popular in Andalusia and Extremadura regions of Spain. Iberian pigs grow in oak forests in this part of the country so the sausage is made from iberian pork, belly, pepper, garlic, and pimentón. Stuffed into natural casings in a shape of a loop and dried for about a month.
