Longaniza in Puerto Rico is seasoned with a precious spice of the Caribbean - annatto. Fresh ground pork is mixed with garlic and annatto, which adds a sweet, mild spiciness and a brick red color to make these tasty sausages. Cook them over charcoal or with rice and serve with beans for a classic Puerto Rican meal.
Annatto, also called achiote or roucou, is a special spice beloved in the west Indies and Carribean islands. The annatto tree has bright red seeds that add a touch of sweetness, a hint of heat and a bit of a nutmeg flavor. It also colors the sausage a warm orange-red that is unmistakable.
A classic Puerto Rican preparation is to dice up the sausage and cook in the pot with rice. It is often served with beans and fried plantains.
