Skilandis

It has a lot of names in Lithuania, but the meaning is always the same. It is a sausage made of choice meat pressed into a pig’s stomach or bladder, seasoned with bacon and spices, smoked in a smokehouse with alder or juniper wood and sometimes a bit cold smoked and then dried and matured for a long time. It might not sound all that gourmet, but the flavour is amazing. And if you add a slice of black bread and a cucumber or a tomato fresh-picked from the garden... It’ll melt in your mouth!
