Wollwurst (Wooly Sausage)

Woolwurst is a narrow and long white German sausage made from pork or pork and veal. The sausage differ es from other white sausages, for example from Münchener Weiꞵwurst in that it does not contain parsley. It is made in a very original way as the sausage instead of being stuffed into a casing is directly injected into boiling water through a suitable tool or attachment to the sausage stuffer. It is briefly boiled, then cooled in cold water what gives the "bare" sausages a soft, "wooly" surface.
