Butifarra is a juicy, mild farmhouse sausage originating in Cataluña. Seasoned with black pepper and garlic, it is one of our favorite grilling sausages.
In country kitchens far away from the bustle of Barcelona, you will find butifarra served to you grilled, accompanied by white beans or 'setas' - wild mushrooms. You might find it crumbled in various stuffings, or sliced in 'cocidos' - hearty soups.
Our Butifarra sausage is made according to a Catalan recipe by a Spanish family living in the USA. We use only free-range pork, which makes not only for happier pigs, but tastier sausages! Each sausage is plump, lightly seasoned, about 1.5 inches in diameter.
This sausage can be stored for a week in the refrigerator but should be frozen for longer storage. Cook thoroughly following USDA guidelines.
