    Butifarra Sausage

    Pork jowl / Pork butt / Salt / Pepper / Natural casings

    Butifarra is a traditional Catalonian sausage made with pork, salt, and pepper. The process involves grinding pork jowl and butt, seasoning with salt and pepper, emulsifying the mixture, stuffing it into natural casings, and then grilling the sausages over an open flame. The dish is served alongside grilled seasonal vegetables, bread for pan con tomate (bread with tomato), allioli, and Porron, a traditional Spanish vessel for communal wine drinking.
