Linguiça is a traditional, homemade-style Portuguese sausage. It is made from high-quality pork meat that is seasoned with a blend of traditional Portuguese spices, giving it a unique and distinctive flavor. The sausage is then cured and smoked over natural wood, which adds a smoky flavor and aroma.
This recipe was shared with us by a friend in New Bedford, Massachusetts, a town whose large Portuguese population features this piquant sausage in traditional fish stews, New England Clam Bakes, and kale soup.

Linguiça or lingüiça (Portuguese pronunciation: [lĩˈɡwisɐ]) is a Brazilian and Portuguese sausage made from pork and seasoned with onion, garlic, paprika and other spices. It can be eaten fresh after being prepared or undergo a curing and conservation process through smoking.
Linguiça, like many other sausages, is generally served as part of a meal, typically accompanied by rice, beans, and other pork products. Feijoada, for example, is a traditional Portuguese and Brazilian dish (considered Brazil's national dish), also common in Angola, that incorporates linguiça with beans, ham hocks, and other foods.
In Brazil, one variant is especially popular: the linguiça calabresa or simply calabresa, prepared originally with Calabrese pepper (nowadays with South American pepper) by Italian immigrants, and particularly used in pizzas as a spicy sausage. Its popularity compares with pepperoni in the United States. It is common to differentiate the linguiça calabresa from its counterpart linguiça portuguesa, prepared from the original Portuguese recipe, and also served in pizzas as mild sausage, generally with egg slices.
Outside of Portugal and Brazil, linguiça is also popular in Goa, Macau, and other former Portuguese colonial possessions. In these regions, it is typically sliced before being grilled or braised, often with a light-bodied beer. It is also popular in California, Rhode Island, and southern Massachusetts. In Hawaii, McDonald's restaurants serve breakfasts featuring linguiça. Hawaiian linguiça, also known as Portuguese sausage, is usually smoked using banana leaves.

All the Hawaiian local brand Portuguese Sausages would be a modification of original old world sausages based on local availability of products, herbs and spices, home-made Portuguese piri piri sauce or Hawaiian chili water, vinegar, wine, animal casing and type of wood smoke if used to cure and preserve.
Interesting. I suspect Gaspars which I never tasted might not have had its best showing. I note that the P sausage sold at KCC freezes poorly also.At the canoe club, after the races, I started a thing where we cooked the sausages over the fire/grill. Any kind brand with lots of commentary. That added another dimension that was really appreciated. The whole sausage, punctured, cooked like a well done hot dog. Not oily, but had everyone smoking the grill.
Portuguese Bean Soup is an iconic local Hawaii (not Hawaiian - here's the difference) dish made from a stock of smoked ham hocks. You boil the ham hocks in water for a few hours. Then chop off all the meat and skin, and add it back to the pot with other ingredients like Portuguese sausage, red kidney beans, potatoes, onions, carrots, cabbage, and macaroni noodles.

perfect dish for a cold night or for a pot luck/ohana style dinner. feeds the whole family. i also use the purity brand portugese sausage instead. ono with a side of sweet bread, my keiki loves the kings hawaiian brand.
It's my 4th time making it. So simple, but sooooo good. The cabbage gives the soup such a good crunchy texture. I use the portuguese sausages from Costco. I had to use my biggest pot, since it makes such a big batch. Love the chewy pork skin. Bottom line, it's delicious and so many textures. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
This sausage was great for using as an ingredient in other recipes calling for chouriço sausage. I used one link in the Portuguese Sausage Frittata very successfully. As a stand-alone sausage I would make these again following my recommendations herein. When I purchase chouriço sausage, I choose the hot flavoured one. That is the kind of chouriço sausage that I want to make at home next time.
Smoked Azores Linguiça (Azores Pork Sausage) Print Prep time 1 hour 30 mins Cook time 3 hours Total time 4 hours 30 mins Linguiça is a traditional delicious sausage from the Azores Islands. Our recipe (mom's) is typical of the south side of the island of Pico in the Azores. Author: Nelson Cardoso Recipe type: Main Cuisine: Portuguese Serves: 7 long sausages Ingredients 8 Lbs or 3.6 kg pork shoulder, skin cleaned off and no bone cups (about 3 lemons) freshly squeezed lemon juice cups (about 3 limes) freshly squeezed lime juice cup (about 1 tangerine or clementine) freshly squeezed clementine juice 1 cups white wine 1 head of garlic (12 to 14 cloves), minced 2 Tbsp course salt 4 Tbsp sweet pimento paste 2 tsp crushed hot red pepper flakes (add more if you like more kick. these are fairly mild) 1 casing, width 32 to 35. One casing was plenty for this amount of meat Instructions The Marinate: Mix together the lemon, lime and tangerine juices, along with the wine, garlic, salt, pimento paste and pepper flakes. Set aside. Chop the pork into small pieces, just a little larger than a peanut. Leave on bit of fat for flavour and juiciness. In a very large bowl, mix the pork with the marinate, cover and refrigerate for at least 12 hours. We marinated for 24 hours. Your casings will likely come in salt. Let them sit in cold clean water for about 30 minutes, and then run them through cold running water again to wash off the salt. Place the casing on the sausage stuffer tube and tie the end, either with kitchen string or the actual casing end. Using a sanitized pin, punch a couple of holes in the end of the casing near the knott. This is to avoid creating air bubbles once you start filling the sausages. Drain the marinate from the meat. Turn on the machine and start feeding the meat into the feeder. Once the meat starts coming into the casing, place one hand on the tube while holding the casing at the tip of the tube. Use your hand to guide the meat. Don't let it fill too much before letting the casing move forward. If you fill it too much, you run the risk of breaking the casing. Use your other hand to hold the sausage as it comes out. Massage it gently to keep the thickness consistant. Ideally, you'll have an assistant/helper feeding the meat, so you can concentrate on the sausage as it comes out. As the sausage came out, we positioned it into a wheel shape on the cutting board and kept feeding it around the wheel until we were done with the meat. Some folks choose to cut and tie each piece as it comes out. Do whatever you find easiest. We liked our method because it allowed us to cut consistent sizes at the end and not worry about stopping during the filling process. We cut our sausages into pieces about 1 foot long and tied both ends with kitchen string. We then tied the string from both end to each other to form a closed loop. Place the sausages in the fridge for about an hour. As per your smoker's instructions, startup your smoker, add your flavouring wood/chips and heat it to 200 ºF. In our case, we loaded up whiskey oak bisquettes into our bradley smoker. Once the smoker is ready, place the linguiça in the smoker. We used hooks to hang them from the string loop, but you can also place these on the grate. We took our linguiça out after about three hours when the meat reached an internal temperature of 155 ºF. Times will vary depending on your smoker and the consistency of the heat. I recommend using a thermometer to know when your meat is ready. Congratulations! You just made linguiça at home! Before serving these, give them a quick fry in vegetable oil or lard. Another traditional way of preparing them is to cover them in red wine in a pot and let it boil until the wine completely reduces. Enjoy! Notes - Make sure you handle the pork quickly when it's outside of the fridge to avoid salmonella growth.- The Kitchenaid stuffer tube will do the trick, but a dedicated sausage stuffing machine will probably quicker results.- Years ago, these would be kept in lard until needed. Times have changed and we keep our in the freezer.- If you plan on keeping the sausages for some time without freezing them, you must use cure #1. If not you take a chance of spoilage. Best to be safe. Thanks for the info Don Howes! 3.5.3208 59ce067264
