This butifarra is nicknamed "treacherous" (traidora) as it is made with tongue, lips, head meat and we all know the saying: loose lips sink ships. The sausage is popular in north-western parts of Catalonia in Pyrenees mountains. This rather greasy sausage was made from offal meat, fat and leftover meat trimmings. It is slightly darker than a typical butifarra.
