LA ESPANOLA DONA JUANA Cantimpalo Dry Cured Sausage is similar to salami and is the thickness of a broom handle. The sausage is highly seasoned with black pepper and cumin. The pork and beef are ground separately, each to a different coarseness, giving the sausage its characteristic double texture.

Cantimpalo sausage is typical of the regions of Salamanca, Segovia and Valladolid, where it is sometimes included in cooked dishes; but it should only be heated through gently to prevent drying out. The best way to eat dry cured sausage is simply sliced, as an appetizer with some crusty bread, maybe a little hearty cheese, and a glass of Spanish Rioja wine.

La Espanola Meats was founded in 1982 by Juana Gimeno Faraone, of Valencia, Spain, and her husband, Frank Faraone, of Martinsferry, Ohio. After marrying in Spain, they went to California, where the entrepreneurial couple’s love of Spanish delicacies led them to transform a small plant into a thriving enterprise with an important place in the gourmet food industry. One of the earliest marketers of Spanish products in the US and, for many products, still the sole distributor, they are also creators of their own line of premium Spanish-style cured meat products and sausages, including this flavorful Cantimpalo, and other fine Spanish foods. Their products bring us authentic Spanish recipes and traditions used by the best producers in Spain, with their own personal brand of attention and pride.
