The difference between sausages is usually the type of spice used.

One of the most popular is the fuet salami, the espetec fuet and the Vic longaniza.They are internationally known and common in Spanish homes. Fuet, the espetec one and the Vic longaniza, are sausages with natural casing. They are usually covered by a thin layer of white mould which gives them that characteristic taste. The Vic longaniza is also known as longaniza Palles and it is the most thickest fuet salami of this type of fuet.

You could say that longaniza is a combination between a fuet and a salchichón. It is usually a Spanish cold meat with a lower cure period, which makes it has a softer and juicy texture. We can find fresh sausages, which must be cooked before consumption. The Spanish sausages are made from minced pork meat, seasoned with spices and stuffed into natural casings.
In Gastronomic Spain we offer you different longanizas, from different areas of Spain:
Longaniza de Pascua
It is one of the most popular Spanish sausages on the peninsula. The thinnest part of the intestine is used to make a sausage with a diameter of 1 cm. It is tasty. Everyone likes the Longaniza de Pascua, irrespective of age. It is a spicy and juicy sausage.
In addition, it comes from the Community of Valencia. And, in spite of it can be eaten all year round, it is a custom to consume it during the Easter holidays.
Llonganissa de Vic
The llonganissa from Vic is very similar to the longaniza payés. It is a thicker sausage than the fuet, the longaniza de Pascua or the Aragonese longaniza. It has a longer curing period and it is covered with a thin layer of mould that gives it that peculiar touch.
The llonganissa from Vic is made in Catalonia, but has spread throughout Spain. This sausage has a bright, intense red colour and when it is cut, the small cubes of fat and black peppercorns are perfectly visible.
Longaniza de Aragón
The Aragonese longaniza is delightful. It is a horseshoe-shaped sausage with a diameter of about 2 cm and an average cure. It is a juicy longaniza, it is not dry, but it is eaten raw.
