Chorizo Ibérico de Huelva

Chorizo Ibérico de Huelva originates in Huelva, an old port city, in southwestern Spain, the capital of the province of Huelva in the autonomous region of Andalucía. To the north of the city there is a number of mountain ranges and national parks with many oak forests (“dehesas”) where Iberian pigs roam free on and feed between November and February on oak acorns (“bellota”). During that time an average Iberian pig commonly known as pata negra consumes 10 kg (22 lbs) of acorns each day. This diet influences the flavor and the texture of its meat and fat.
