Chorizo Rojo de Teror

The characteristic of the Teror sausage is its soft texture, almost a paste, in order to be easily spread on a roll or bread. To obtain soft texture the sausage is made with soft fats such as pork belly, dewlap or jowls. Chorizo de Teror comes in two varieties: red colored chorizo rojo made with pimentón and less popular light colored chorizo blanco made without it. In northern European countries such a sausage will be classified as a fermented spreadable sausage, for example Polish Metka or German Mettwurst, although European sausages will be briefly cold smoked. Teror is a town and a municipality in the northern part of the island of Gran Canaria in the Province of Las Palmas in the Canary Islands.
