Their main ingredient is pork and fennel. The sausages of Syros have a characteristic flavor due to fennel(aromatic herb), used in their preparation.
Besides sausages with fennel, there are also those with garlic. Aromatic or spicier, in both variants, Syros sausage is a delicacy you must try when visiting the island. You can enjoy them at your favorite local tavern in several traditional recipes (fried, grilled, scrambled inside).
In October, when pig slaughters are started, in some villages festivals are organized by the locals.
