While we are on the subject of sausages, we should take the opportunity to explain this other Menorcan product, which is an important part of the table of each and every one of the inhabitants. The origin of sobrassada is in Sicily, but it arrives on the island through trade and has become an important artisan product.
Sobrasada is made from the meat of the local “faixat” breed of pig. This sausage has a fine consistency, a characteristic reddish colour and an incredible but delicate taste. There are different types of sobrasada, depending on how it is made. The difference between Menorcan sobrasada and Majorcan sobrasada is that Menorcan sobrasada has less fat.
Its intense flavours, smells and colours make it an excellent accompaniment for different Menorcan dishes. The gastronomy of Menorca is unique, so be sure to try it.
