Sausage originally from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. It is made with pork rind, sweetbreads and other offal. It is cylindrical and large, similar in size to salami, and is part of the menu for year-end festivities, when it is served with lentils. In Brazil, the product – also called escodeguim, escudiguinho or cudiguim – can be found at some supermarkets and butcher shops, mainly in the South and Southeast regions,
in places where the influence of Italian immigration is more representative, such as São Paulo, Paraná and Rio Grande do Sul. Because the fat content is fairly high, it is most often cooked and served with leafy vegetables, the Italian way.
