NOTES : LONGANIZA/LINGUICA "The Spanish longaniza is usually served fresh, while the Portuguese linguica is frequently smoked. It's traditionally stuffed into the narrow sheep casings, but you can also use the more easily obtainable hog casings. There are several companies in America who make linguica, especially in New England where many Portuguese immigrants settled. Linguica are even included in many traditional New England clambakes. "
