Sausage is a kind of food that uses very old food production and meat preservation technology. It is a long cylindrical tubular food made by mincing animal meat into strips and then filling it with casing.  Sausages are made by filling small casings of pigs or sheep (or those with large casings) with seasoned meat and drying them.


Chinese sausages have a long history, and there are many types of sausages, mainly Sichuan-flavor sausages and Cantonese-flavor sausages.  The main difference is that the Cantonese flavor is sweet and the Sichuan flavor is spicy.


 In the past, sausage was made before Chinese New Year every year, but now it can be eaten at any time of the year.  However, eating homemade sausages during the New Year has become a custom in many areas in the south and has been preserved to this day.


  The world's longest sausage was made on December 27, 2008 in Bucharest, Romania. Chefs made a 392-meter-long sausage with 70 kilograms of meat, garlic and other ingredients, thus breaking the world record.
