Erbswurst (Pea Sausage)

Erbswurst is German highly nutritional sausage made with pea flour, pork meat, pork belly, fat and onions. It has been invented in 1867 by Johann Heinrich Grüneberg in Berlin and has been made and sold in Germany ever since. When Erbswurt is mixed with water an instant pea soup is created.
