Default Why summer sausage is called summer sausage

You guys probably knew this, but after 2years of asking nobody's ever given me a sensible answer.
So here it is:

Quote:
Summer sausage is the general term for any sausage that can be kept without the need of refrigeration. Summer sausage is usually a mixture of pork and other meat such as beef and/or venison. Summer sausage can be either dried or smoked, and curing ingredients can vary significantly, although some sort of curing salt is almost always used. Seasonings may include mustard seeds, black pepper, garlic salt, or sugar.

Summer sausage, like many types of sausage, makes use of leftover scrap meat and organ meat that would otherwise be wasted. However some brands of summer sausage do not use scrap meats at all.

A particular kind of summer sausage is popular in North Dakota, occasionally containing cheese in addition to meat. This type of summer sausage is smoked rather than dried and is generally best kept and eaten cold, though it can be cooked.

Traditionally, summer sausage is a fermented sausage with a low pH to slow bacterial growth and give a longer shelf life, causing a tangy taste. The distinctive taste can be copied using citric acid as a shortcut to keeping cultures to ferment the following batch.
Now it makes sense lol

And here I thought it was because whenever I brought a deer into the local processor in the Fall and put an order in for Sausage, it took him till Summer to get it done

Good read

lol well I have asked you lot several times with no answer. So sometimes you have to go find out for yourself.
And like everything - sometimes people don't ask because they think it makes them look stupid.
So in case there were/are anyone else who didn't know - it never hurts to post information :-)


I'm just looking for a category name for the big sliced sausages. Given that I'll be the only person making them when i start commercially, I need a category class and a name for each particular sausage flavour.

I like the sound of summer sausage, but needed to know the background :-)

Untill last year the only summer sausage i had tasted was the crap they sell at wal mart.
I found a great use for that stuff. Best bait i have ever used in my minnow traps down in the marsh!!!
At the gathering last spring i tasted a couple of home made summer sausages and found out what i'd been missing.

Amen to that eman..... My FIL & his cronies make the best SS I have personally had & of course their recipe is on a piece of paper only a couple of them have.... They will give it to me mixed up for whatever batch pounds I am wanting to make, but will not give me the recipe.... Bastards! ....
