"Eusko Label" product
'Txistorra' is a type of sausage that is popular in the Basque Country. "Txistorra" is cured only for a brief period - for weeks rather than months.
It has the same ingredients as a chorizo, but the ‘Txistorra’ has a higher fat content, natural gut casing is always used and it is always thinner than chorizo.
This top quality ‘Txistorra’ is extremely good. It is made from fresh, minced farmhouse pork with just the right amount of paprika, salt, herbs and garlic.
It can be used for many dishes including chopped into smaller sections for 'pintxos' (tapas).
- Fried Txistorra is often accompanied by beer or wine, especially ‘Txakoli’
- One of the most popular dishes involving ‘Txistorra’ is a dish with fried eggs and potatoes
