In our travels around the Southeast US I've been seeing these jars of German wieners and frankfurters in several grocery stores and international markets. They don't look unappetizing, but I wasn't sure how good a sausage floating in liquid at room temperature for two years might taste.

Well, I saw them in a local grocery store, so I thought I'd try them. I purchased a jar of five German Wieners. I heated them in hot water, placed one on a bun with some Löwensenf German mustard and a bit of kraut. WOW - these are some tasty wieners - and they have that hearty "crunch" from the natural casing.

I know many of you have access to some incredible wieners and franks from local delis, and these don't compare. However, for a mass market wiener or frankfurter, these aren't half bad.

I'm not sure what you mean. Like Vienna sausages in a can?

Though I wouldn't be surprized if you could find them pickled...they are not typically.

I am pretty sure OP is talking about:

The sausages are vacuum sealed into glass jars and carefully cooked in brine inside the jar. This is why the sausages don’t need refrigeration, but taste fresh, wholesome, meaty and authentically delicious.

Yes, DG - they taste good when heated, and even better when served with sauerkraut, or just relish and mustard.

They aren't pickled. They are in a liquid similar to the small amount of liquid that's in a package of shrink-wrapped domestic franks.

Hot pickled peppers were in all the beer joints growing up. Loved them back then. Tried a jar from Sam's a while back and don't like them much now. Similar to above in link but shorter...

If they're not pickled they probably have enough nitrates/nitrites in them to choke a horse.

Yes - that's what the frankfurters look like. The wieners are a bit shorter and have a natural casing - some of the links are still attached. They also sell cocktail wieners in a jar.

I really like the flavor of these .

You tried the "wrong" kind. Try the original German sausages...
