Morcela is a traditional Portuguese and Brazilian black sausage typically served in a number of regions. The black pudding made in the region of Guarda is recognized as having high quality, as well as the Azores and Portalegre. Morcela is made with a combination of pork, pork cheeks, and bacon, which have been cut into relatively large pieces. Seasonings may include ground pepper (or sweet pepper paste), wine, salt, garlic, dried garlic, spices (including cloves and cumin), and preservatives. Pig's blood is used as a binder, which gives consistency and dark color.
