Mysliwska - Hunter's Sausage

Mysliwska Sausage - Hunter’s Sausage is made of pork and beef. A hunter carried a big hunting bag where he kept the necessary tools and food that had to last for a number of days. Mysliwska Sausage was a relatively short, well smoked sausage that would make an ideal food or snack in those circumstances. Hunter’s Sausage is popular in many countries, for example in Germany it is called Jadgwurst and in Italy Cotechino. Prolonged smoking and juniper berries give the sausage its unique character.
