Ingredients and preparation of the Ollada

Ingredients (5 people)

  • cured ham rind
  • 1 half-salt pork knuckle
  • 2 pig ears
  • 1 pig's trotters
  • 1 pork tail
  • 1 piece of spare ribs (Costelló pronounced cousteillou)
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 leeks
  • 1 turnips
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 small headed cabbage
  • 100g dried beans
  • 6 large potatoes
  • 1 big onion
  • salt, pepper, garlic
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. finally coffee parsley
  • sausages and Botiffarres (black pudding type specialities) or
  • 200 g sausage meat

Prep time

The day before, place your white beans in a bowl with water to make them swell.

In a large pot, put the meat and the rind, salt and pepper (a few small onions if you have any). Cook for 3 hours.

In a saucepan, put the beans in water with garlic, thyme and bay leaf then bring to the boil.

Clean the cabbage, cut it into strips.

Peel the potatoes, peel the onion, cut it into 4.

After the meat has been cooked for 3 hours, add the vegetables.

During this time, if you are making your own sausages, mix the sausage meat with the whole egg and the parsley, make 2 to 3 sausages with this stuffing and roll them in flour.

Brown them in a pan. Serve at the same time, all hot. ¡

The ollada prepared the day before is even better!
