Cudighi (aka Yooper Sausage)

Ross B | Apr 20, 201006:54 PM     14

I live in Memphis, TN and have been eating the same unique Italian sausage my entire life. There is only one place left in town to buy it. It's made without fennel and has a very distinctive taste because it's made with red wine, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some other spices.

While doing some research on the internet I came across cudighi and read about its prevalence in the UP. This must be the same recipe. From what I can tell the original recipe came from Northern Italy. As far as I can tell, Memphis and the UP are the only places in the US where this specific sausage is made.

Does anyone know anything more about this unique and delicious Italian sausage?
