My grandmother used to justfry it and we would eat it with her crusty white bread. If I could find it where I live in Maine. ,I would try it. I need to see if I can find it when I go back home to R.I.

Used to enjoy GASPAR’S morcella. Not sure why they stopped making it. Tried Michael’s, but didn’t care for it. Haven’t found another brand I like, and its hard ($$) to sample when I have to mail order to get Portuguese products. Fortunately, they do sell Gaspar’s linguica in my local market, so that’s my go to sausage for eggs and other dishes.

Hi Al
I work at Gaspars and I recently asked about starting to make Marcela again and was told maybe towards the end of the summer/early fall, as its a seasoned product.
