Chinese Sausages

A Chinese sausage is a dried and hard sausage usually made from pork and a high content of fat. It's normally smoked and seasoned with rice wine, rose water and soy sauce.

Traditionally Chinese sausages are classified into two main types: those made using fresh pork and those made using pig livers, duck livers and even turkey livers. A sausage made with liver will be darker in color than one made without liver.

Due to the meat's dryness and intensity in flavor, the sausage is often used as a flavor component in other dishes.
