#307 Lucban Longganisa

Longganisa Lucban is a garlicky slightly sour sausage that is quite similar to chorizo de Bilbao, the famous garlic sausage from Spain.

The sausage’s main ingredients are medium ground pork, rock salt, paprika, garlic powder, dried oregano, sugar, Filipino (white) vinegar, pork back fat, and sausage casings. The sausage is made in the towns of Sariaya, Tayabas, Lucena and Lucban in Quezon province either by backyard industries or medium scale operations. Some recipes omit the vinegar, making the Lucban sausages less sour than the Vigan longganisa. But the distinctive flavours are the garlic and oregano.

 Bon appétit!
