Matanza Time

matanza.jpg

November is the time of the year when Mallorcan families celebrate matanzas.

A pig has been reared all year long. Now it is time to slaughter the animal, to make butifarrons, sobrassadas and other embutidos to provide nourishment throughout the year. Friends and neighbours are invited to join the celebrations and to help with the meat processing. A happy event and a great Mallorcan tradition.

The photo was taken near the town of Felanitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: November 11th, 2007. The time was 11:44:20.
