History of Chorizo
The chorizo has a primitive origin as it is closely linked to the “slaughter of the pig,” one of the gastronomic traditions, festive, cultural and even religious tradition in most rural villages in Spain. Most of families were supplied with a storage of meat for the entire year.
In the fifteenth century cattle are bred outside the cities and parts were sold to butchers when killed. But it was different with the pigs. The pig was growing up in the villages, were killed in the streets and the chorizo was prepared by the family. This custom is something that still exists in some villages, “The slaughter of the pig.”
