    It's Still "We The People", right??
    I recently came up with a formula for landjaeger, a German/Austrian semi-dry cured sausage that was very popular with hunters as a field snack, and was also a ration meat for the Landjaegers, which was somewhat similar to our National Guard many years ago. In my sausage making and meat curing I try to pay respect to old country traditions. I was actually very surprised how well this turned out, given it was my first time. This was a beef/pork formula, but if I kill a deer this year I'm going to try it with deer meat. This is a German style sausage and doesn't have garlic or fennel or wine or anything you'd associate with an Italian Salame. The sausage is also place between 2 boards and a heavy weight is place don top, giving it it's rectangular shape. Anyways, it was fun, although I'm no Hank Shaw.

    Beautiful work!

    I had a German butcher way back when. Best tasting time of my hunting life.

    Good stuff. Being that my heritage is half Swiss and half Italian I always had the benefit of eating good salame and good landjeager.

    Saag's used to make a pretty good landjeager but they don't make it anymore. Yours look pretty darn good with a little more meat than fat compared to what I am used to seeing and tasting....

    Keep up the old world experimenting. Do you think it could be done with duck?
