Red sausage, originated in Eastern Europe and Lithuania, was widely spread to other countries in Europe. Because of the humid climate in these places, which is not conducive to drying food, it is often smoked with sawdust to form the current flavor of red sausage. At the end of the 19th century, it was introduced into Harbin by Russian expatriates. The name of Red sausage came into being in 1964. Before that, it had been called "lidos(transliteration)" and translated into Russian. Because of its jujube red appearance, lidos was renamed "Hongchang(transliteration, means Red sausage)".
