Sobrasada is a semi-cured spreadable form of charcuterie made from paprika and pork. This hot version of the black pig sobrasada contains the finest parts of Majorcan porc negre, a local breed that is free range and organically fed.
The traditional way of eating Majorcan sobrasada is to spread it on local bread, grilled if preferred. Sobrasada pairs surprisingly well with honey and an authentic local way to enjoy it is well cured with a sprinkling of sugar. Membrillo or fresh summer fruits such as with figs, grapes and cherries make a perfect combination.
Sobrasada is a very versatile ingredient for cooking with rice, pasta, fish, cheese, poultry, game, and for stuffing vegetables.
