Figatelli Fresh Sausage

The Figatelli is a Corsican sausage made of liver and pork and scented with cloves of garlic and spices. There are significant differences in the proportion of the liver according to whether it is located in Southern Corsica or Upper Corsica. There are many variations and the sausage can be made as fresh type that must be fully cooked before serving or a dry type which is ready to eat at any time though it was not cooked.
