Palengke Style Longganisa

In Cabatuan public market, I came across two guys preparing longganisa (sausage) palengke style.

Cleaning the pork intestines by means of scraping

Casing of the longganisa from cleaned pork intestines. All natural

Adding lots of sugar and some salt into the 5 kilo ground pork

This is the most unappealing part - the addition of strawberry food color

Soy sauce is added

Mixing by hand

The mix is now ready to be made into links using the natural casing from pig intestines

Panciteria

image

It’s a likelihood that the pancit sold by the kilo in the palengke will be bought for preparing into pancit cabagan or pancit batil patong. These two pancit dishes are always in the menu of panciterias inĀ Isabela.
