Traditionally, the sausage is made with meat and fat taken from the ribs. It is usually seasoned with garlic, pepper, and salt before being stuffed into natural casings. The sausage can be sold raw or lightly smoked, and before serving, it is usually boiled and sliced. Although it is mostly enjoyed as an appetizer, kazy can also be incorporated into various dishes,” reads the article.
