Hola Amigos,

I have tasted Spanish Longaniza sausage only once in my life. After our mother passed away in 1959, Dad took my younger brother and me to visit his sister, Elvira, in Fairmont, WV.

For breakfast, she fixed us Spanish sausage and eggs. Dad told us that it was made there locally, and that we had never eaten it before. I have never had it since and out of curosity, I have been searching for a recipe on the internet to make my own. That research is one tough assignment. I believe that the ingredients and directions must be a well kept secret.

I have been told that it is still being made in the Clarksburg area, and that one might find it in October at the Spanish Festival held at Stonewood, WV.

You'll want to read these threads about longaniza and chorizo:
http://www.asturianus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=227

Here is a couple of recipes (including Josephine's!) and discussion about making chorizos and longaniza:
http://www.asturianus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8

A couple of years ago, Frank Fernandez was making longaniza in the Clarksburg area:

The way to find things on the forum is to do a special kind of search on Google. You enter this in a Google search box: site:asturianus.org longaniza
The site:asturianus.org part tells Google which domain to look in.

Yes, you might luck out and be able to buy some longaniza or chorizo at the festival! I did a few years ago.

I'm going to close this thread so the discussion can continue in those other areas I've listed above.
