Loukanika Sausage

Loukanika Sausage is a Greek fresh sausage made with lamb and pork and seasoned with orange rind. The Greek mountainous terrain is ill suited for raising cattle but perfect for animals such as goats and sheep. The best example is the famous Greek “Feta” cheese which is made from goat and sheep milk. Most recipes include spices like garlic, oregano, thyme, marjoram, and allspice. Dry red or white wine is often used.
