How to Cook Vigan Longganisa
1. If preferred, separate the longganisa pieces by cutting them with scissors.
2. Pour the entire pack of longganisa in a pan and add just enough water to cover the longganisa.
3. Prick the longganisa with a fork, cover, and let simmer over medium heat. (It’s important that you prick so the meat juices don’t get trapped inside the longganisa skin. I forgot to prick them before cooking and the water inside the pieces squirted when I poked holes while cooking! Be careful).
4. Allow water to simmer until evaporated, leaving the natural oil of the meat.
5. You may add a little bit more oil if preferred. Constantly turn the longganisa pieces until brown all over. At this point it would start to smell good!

6. Serve hot. Best had when dipped in vinegar.
And just like that I’ve become a Vigan Longganisa fan. It was garlicky, meaty, and not too sweet. I wish that I brought home more 🙁
