This delicious sausage dates back to the end of the 15th century and the beginnings of the 16th century and it was created by new Christians who continued to maintain some habits of their former Jewish religion. They intended to be assumed as examples of integration across the society. However, as Judaism prohibits pork consumption, some newly converted invented one filling made of alternative meat such as the meat of fowl and hunting.
Currently this is a smoked filling, whose main ingredients are chicken, bread, olive oil, garlic and paprika, there are still those who prepare this delicacy with hunting meat, duck and peppers.
The sausage is handmade produced in the regions of Trás-os-Montes and Beira Alta, the most famous location for its Mirandela production.
