Thanks for that. Sorry for my rambling on . I guess my question should be are they good enough to be worth 2 bucks each? That is pretty pricey.

Not if you can get better quality for less. Unlike most of you, we don't have any real delis around here.

My situation is very much like yours. I order food online often. I've never had Meica products, but I plan to try them. Years ago I used to buy canned hot dogs packed in brine. Once, I was in the mood but didn't have any. I simmered regular hot dogs in brine for ten minutes; they were just as tasty.

This place has some additional flavors of Meica along with fresh sausage. When the weather is cooler thst's a good way to buy for those of us far from the city lights.

Canned/Jarred Meats

I've been a customer of this place for years. I always get my potato sausage for Christmas from them. They don't have anything in jars but you can do the canning or jarring yourself if you wish. It's better to wait until cold weather to order anything fresh. Overnight shipping works in the summer, but it's extremely expensive.

I've been curious about these, as I noticed them in Bed Bath and Beyond (which seems to have added gourmet world food selections recently), and I'd seen them in Europe. I'm sure I'd like them, but they are a bit pricey.

Czechs make something similar, called "utopenec", which, unappetizingly enough, means "drowned man". They're a typical staple in pubs, usually eaten cold with bread, a dash of vinegar and some raw onion. Goes great with beer, and I've made them before by adding cut up polish sausage to a jar of pickle brine (after I've eaten the pickles).

Yup I can say I have never had German wieners from a jar.

I've only seen them at the commissary here. An employee from the meat cutters department at Pearl Harbor Commissary told me that these are really a high quality sausage product compared to the American ones.

He said all you have to do is to read the list of ingredients, and you'll see the German ones are all meat, and is doesn't have fillers like the others.

Out of curiosity, I bought some and fixed them with German Potato Pancakes, Braised Red Cabbage and sauerkraut. Everybody LOVED IT!

I just ran downstairs to look at the ingredients in the jar I just purchased (I had to try another type of sausage). No fillers in the ingredient list . It's no wonder they taste so darned good.

How odd! Where do you live, that you have no delis?

I smell a business opportunity.

I've had the pickled ones and I like them.

Natural casings are best, for sure!

Smack dab in the heart of Dixie.

We have a few places they call delis, but anyone who has been to a real deli knows the difference.
