Most people only know Ibérico pork for jamón ibérico, the ultra-luxe Spanish cured ham, but the melt-in-your-mouth meat tastes delicious in any form. For the highest-quality Ibérico products, we trust family company Fermín, which is based in Salamanca, Spain, and was the first authorized exporter of Ibérico products to the United States. The company's traditional chorizo is coarsely ground for a meatier texture that shows off the pork's marbling; thinly sliced, it tastes tender and rich with the naturally nutty and sweet flavors that Ibérico pork is prized for. This spicy version gets its smoky depth from hot paprika and cumin, with a nutty boost from nutmeg and lactic tang from the fermentation process; as an added bonus, the company only uses pure salt to cure the meat, for a cleaner flavor than other brands made with nitrates.
The chorizo has a medium spice level that is especially tasty when accented by creamy fresh cheese—try it on simple ricotta crostini with high-quality extra-virgin olive oil to savor the complex flavor of the chorizo. This sausage's heat pairs wonderfully with earthy lentils, as in our Spanish Lentil and Chorizo Soup
