Curiosities about longaniza

Pork sausage includes minced pork meat seasoned with spices. It is characterized by its elongated and narrow shape, which is why it is often confused with chorizo, but it is not the same sausage! In some parts of Spain, as in Zamora, longaniza is known as choriza or vuelta.

It is a type of sausage that, although it can be eaten raw (after a curing process), is also possible to fry, bake and cook to adapt it to different recipes. When the longaniza is fresh, it must be cooked. In Spain, there are five different types of longaniza (Aragón, Cataluña, Navarra, Valencia, and Avilés). They have an exquisite flavor, and although they are very similar, you will notice that they are somewhat different.

Recipes with longaniza sausage
