Origin and history of the longaniza sausage
The longaniza sausage is a product of Iberian origin. It comes more precisely from the south of Spain (Andalusia). This sausage is today a flagship product of Spanish sausages, specifically from Catalonia and Andalusia. This is what earned it the Protected Geographical Indication.
The production of longanisse sausage dates back to the 14th century, but it was revealed to the world in 1857 at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. This traditional charcuterie product is now consumed in France, in many countries of the European Union and throughout the world. Longanissa sausage is made with minced pork meat and spices. Everything is wrapped in natural sheep casing before a compulsory 7-day drying period.
The aging that characterizes the longanisse sausage gives it its particular taste, its striking smell and its color. This sausage contains saturated fatty acids, carbohydrates, sugars and proteins. Sausage or longaniza sausage also contains fats as well as salt. It is therefore a pleasure food, to be consumed in moderation, but always with pleasure!
Making the longaniza sausage
The longaniza recipe is simple to understand, but it can only be mastered by craftsmen experienced in this type of charcuterie production. To make a longanisse sausage, they first use fresh pork belly. Some recipes also use boneless pork shoulder. In addition to minced pork, you need natural mutton casing with a diameter ranging from 22 to 26 mm. The other essentials are in general:
- a mixture of four spices,
- ground black pepper,
- sweet pepper,
- green anise.
In other cultures, white pepper or gray pepper powder is used. The Pied-noir people as well as other ethnic groups around the world have created many varieties of this farm sausage. They are sometimes found that contain cloves, saffron, cinnamon powder, garlic and nutmeg. Apart from the main ingredients of pork, natural mutton casing and green anise, the spices used may vary from one product to another. These ingredients used to produce sausage or longaniza sausage are used to give it its particular little taste. They can therefore be used according to the desire of each artisan of traditional charcuterie . The use of spices leads to the distinction between mild longaniza sausages and hot longaniza sausages.
In addition, industrial sausage contains additional products such as dextrin, soy protein, stabilizers, preservatives, lactose and sometimes a flavor enhancer. Commercial sausages are often vacuum-packed. This allows them to retain all their natural properties until consumption.
On the Directos.eu store, you will find, in addition to this unique succulent longanisse, other types of sausages which will be from the Keesbo brand, a Spanish manufacturer based in Catalonia. This producer has been working in the field of artisanal charcuterie (sausage, ham, etc.) for over 60 years.
How can you eat longanisse?
Longanissa is very similar to salami, but also to chorizo, another specialty of Iberian charcuterie or Spanish. It can be eaten in different ways. Commercially, it is available as a semi-smoked dry sausage. However, longanissa can also be eaten fresh, semi-dried or grilled. In some recipes, it is used as an ingredient in its own right. This is the case for the preparation of puff pastries with longanisse.
Longanissa sausage can also be eaten fried, especially in egg dishes. Thanks to its pronounced and particularly spicy taste, this sausage arouses the interest of guests at every barbecue. It can also be used to complete an aperitif board. There are many longanissa recipes that you can find on cooking sites, cooking shows, magazines, etc.
