- Then using a ice plastic bag, tie a knot to the closed end then insert the open end to the funnel nozzle.
- Fill the funnel with 1/8 cup of the meat mixture and push the meat using the rubber spatula and when there is some left of the mixture on the funnel, push it with a thick wooden stick to push all the meat to the plastic casing.
- Then remove the plastic casing from the funnel and push the meat downward and twist the open end of the casing to form the longganisa.
- Prick the air bubbles with a toothpick to release the air. Then tie into a knot to seal the longganisa. Do the same procedure on the rest of the mixture.
- Place the longganisa in a container and freeze overnight before cooking.
- To cook the longganisa: Soak first in water then remove the plastic casing. Put a little water in a pan then put the longganisa.
- Bring to a boil and simmer until the liquid evaporates and oil renders from the longganisa. Fry until brown. Serve with vinegar dipping sauce: mix chopped onions, vinegar, siling labuyo and crushed garlic.
