All Pello's charcuteries are made from his own “Euskal Txerria” breed of pigs. They are adorable looking animals; big easy-going black pigs with enormous, floppy ears that fall over their eyes! At Pello’s they roam freely in the fields and under the century old trees, gorging on the nuts and seeds. Such happy pigs make superlative meat!
Pello's Salchichon is really salame at its best. The quality of the meat is flabbergasting and supported by just the right touch of spices. When trying it you will wonder how Pello managed to fit an entire pig's worth of flavour into a single sausage!
Pello's Salchichon is delivered vacuum packed and will last for months unopened in the fridge. Once open wrap it in a clean cloth, keep it refrigerated and eat within 3 weeks.
How to use
Just eat it as-is, in not too thin slices, at room temperature with a good glass of red wine. Honestly it is difficult to improve on such a great product!
Serve it as part of a tapas plate together with Pello’s Chorizo Curado and Jamon curado, Jose’s Boquerones and Salted anchovies, Iosu's Roncal and some Pa amb tomàquet (bread with tomatoes).
What about Pello
The happiest pigs in the world! And you can taste it!
Getting to Pello's farm is no easy quest, as it is hidden away among the wood covered hills, along a winding and steep road next to a small village. After asking quite a few people we are getting closer and meet Marcelino, a 94 year old farmer who lives a few hundred meters away. He chats happily with us: “We don’t get many people around here” he says, so he keeps us a bit longer, chit chatting about his grandsons.
