The traditional spicy sausages known as pastourmas are made the same way as traditional Cypriot sausages.

They both contain dry red wine, salt, garlic and spices including coriander seeds and black pepper.

The main difference is that pastourma sausages made out of beef and red pepper -making them spicier- whereas traditional Cypriot sausages are made of pork.

Pastourma sausages are usually cooked on the grill on the barbecue or in a frying pan and form part of a traditional meze meal along with sausages halloumi and pitta bread
