I have to admit that when Kate suggested we make Linguica, I had never even heard of it. But we had 80 pounds of pork butt to make into sausages so I figured we might as well give it a whirl… It turns out it’s a Portuguese sausage made with paprika and garlic, and that’s precisely what we made! ;o)

It makes a lovely soup that was so delicious that I’m not sure I want to use it for anything else…

Here’s how you can make your own: You can also check out sausage making tips HERE.

5 pounds ground pork butt

2 Tablespoons paprika

1 Tablespoon smoked paprika

2 Tablespoons minced fresh garlic

5 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup red wine

1/2 Tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons oregano

1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Mix seasonings in a small bowl. Add to ground pork and mix well until fully incorporated.

Chill immediately. Cook a small bit to check taste. Add more spices or more meat according to your taste. Know that they flavor will alter some after a few days.

Use within a day or two or freeze for longer storage.
