In some towns of “Alta Murgia” and “Appennino Dauno”, in Foggia, sausages are made with pork cut into small pieces by hand. The meat is then seasoned with wild fennel seeds, hot chilly pepper, salt and white wine (only in the Murgia region), and then stuffed into the pig’s casing. It can be eaten fresh or aged after being lightly smoked.
