Does anyone know where I can find sweet lebanon bologna here in Metro Denver, if at all? It's more of a Pennsylvania Dutch thing, I guess, but I'm wondering if maybe one of the eastern European deli/markets have anything like it.

I'm going to do some research on my own, but I figured I'd ask just in case someone has already found it. I'm in the mood for a sandwich today! It just seems like the perfect lunch for a hot day.

And yes, I'd even venture into Aurora to get it.

Thanks!

I remember that from growing up in Baltimore, damn, that was good stuff. For some reason we called is "summer baloney," probably due to all the salt and spices that kept it fairly well preserved. IIRC, the two brands we liked the most were Esskay and Thuringer's, which I haven't seen here.

I have never seen Lebanon Bologna in Denver--that is a sort of specialy in the Pennsylvania. The best sausage manufacturer in Denver is Continental Sausage Continental Sausage produces all natural and gourmet European style sausages, as well as domestic and imported hams, salamis, cheeses, and chocolates.. They have a retail store in Cherry Creek.

The products are expensive but of the best quality that I have seen produced in this market. They carry many types of sausages and cured products. They would be most familiar with any product that they carry that would be similiar to this product.

According to my memory, the product is similiar to a dry aged fermented summer sausage--like the popular Hickory Farms Beef Sausage--but not quite the same because it is more moist and not shelf stable like the Hickory Farm product.

Hmm I wonder what Quark is, I always thought of it as a Fergeni on Star Trek It seems like cheese type thing on that site you copied livec.

When I first moved here Kings use to sell Boar's head products. I miss their bologna, ham and etc. Too bad they stopped selling it I saw a truck about a year ago that said Boar's Head on it but I could not follow the dang thing. I would have figured out where they sell it since google did not help me.
It did not help me find what you are looking for locally either but these guys ship:

Meats and Cheese from Lancaster County PA

Thanks for the responses. I'll check out the Continental Deli in Cherry Creek. I'm also going to take a look at the Summer Hill Market in Hilltop because it's not far from where I live and I never stopped to look. Interestingly enough, my King Soopers (at Monaco and Leetsdale) has Summer Sausage -- it's not exactly the same thing, but they do have it. It's on a display in the meat section but not available in the deli.

I'll let you know if I find it.

Summer Sausage is a camping / hiking staple (since it doesn't need to be refrigerated). You can find it in any grocery store in Colorado.

Quark means curds in German. The only word I can remember in cooking is Quarkase with an umlaut over the a in kasecheese, meaning curd cheese. It also means other less than savory terms in idiomatic slang German speech-trash, filth etc.

As I came across more words in English and other languages, I could see how the writers of TV shows and movies used not well known words to surreptitiously give other meanings to character names and places. These writers were very well read and educated.

Most people do not realize that many of these dry cured sausages are not cooked, but fermented, and those that are smoked do not reach a temperature where it is cooked--they are cold smoked. The curing involves drying and fermentation which kills the pathogens and prevents the growth of others. Essentially they are raw. Genoa Salami, most old authentic pepperonis, Lebanon Bologna and many others are dry cured fermented products.

Quark is like a cross between cream cheese and cottage cheese. It is available in different parts of the country. We used to get it in Seattle. It's nice spread on toast! You can find it in eastern european shops and markets.
