Silly question ...why is this called summer sausage ?
Bianca's picture
Summer Sausage is a type of cured sausage where salt, drying and fermentation are used to provide long term properties (such as flavor) to the sausage. Summer sausage, just like hot dogs, are cooked, usually in hot water and kept under refrigeration for long periods of time, sometime, months. Summer sausages are semi-dry sausage, which are a type of cured sausage again. Dry sausages, the other type of cured sausages, on the other hand, are not cooked but dried to about three fourth of their weight over long periods of time (several months). Summer sausage are typically made from pork and beef. They are typically cooked. As a finish, Summer sausage can be stuffed into fibrous casings or beef middles for the traditional size.
