Sobrassada Con Miel


I mentioned Matanzas the other day. One essential component of these great Mallorcan Autumn rituals is the making of Sobrassada, a sausage meat that used to form part of the staple food of families living here on this island.

If you live in Mallorca you must have had your own encounter with Sobrassada. It is a bit like Marmite in that you either like it or hate it. Sobrassada is mostly eaten as a cold spread on Pan Moreno, the popular country bread in Mallorca. You can also try Sobrassada on bread, toasted over an open fire. Mallorcans eat Sobrassada with sweet dishes, like with Ensaïmadas, or with hot meals, or as part of sauces, etc. There is a surprising array of Sobrassada recipes. One tasty combination is Sobrassada with honey (see photo). You can have that with a simple pasta dish, although that would not be truly Mallorcan. But, be daring and try some Sobrassada if the opportunity arises, with honey or without.

The photo was taken in the village of Llubí, Mallorca, Spain. The date: November 25th, 2007. The time was 12:46:43.
