Luganige

Luganige

Luganige are the famous sausages from the Sinj area, but also known in Split and Šibenik, where they are an obligatory part of Christmas holiday festive feasts. Luganige are made from a mixture of pork and lamb stuffed into lamb or sheep intestines, but what makes them special are the spicings: lemon juice and grated rind, pepper, coriander, cinnamon and garlic juice. The traditional way in which these sausages are served in Sinj is somewhat curious: fried with rice cooked in chicken stock. In Šibenik they are cooked in beef stock, and the mouth-watering aroma of luganige being prepared heralds a festive lunch.
