Wine sausage and its composition

Wine sausage is one of our traditional meat products, which is partly similar to Bavarian sausage. As its name suggests, one of its ingredients is wine. White wine with a nutmeg flavor is most often used. The reason is that the taste and aroma of this wine are perfectly combined with a spice mixture based on nutmeg and nutmeg.

A traditional wine sausage should contain approximately fifty percent fattier pork, fifteen percent beef, ten percent lean pork such as shoulder or thigh, white wine, nutmeg, nutmeg, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and buns soaked in milk. The resulting mixture is then stuffed into a thin mutton casing, most often two centimeters in diameter.

What is the best way to prepare wine sausage?

The most common method of heat treatment of this sausage is to fry it in a pan or bake it in the oven. Before the actual heat treatment, the sausage is usually twisted into a spiral or snail and then secured with a skewer, needle or toothpicks.

The resulting dish is said to resemble the sun after frying. For this reason, in the past, wine sausage became one of the foods consumed at Christmas in connection with the winter solstice. So that the sausage does not crack during roasting, it is important to roast it slowly, or scald it first in hot water for a while.
