Morrpølse

Morr sausage is a Norwegian salami which is probably one of the oldest processed food products in Norway. Morr sausage has, like other sausages , probably been made ​​in Norway ever since the Viking era.Traditionally morr sausage was made from tripe, usually from sheep and offal meat such as heart, lungs, kidneys, tongue, stomach, esophagus and colon. These were chopped or ground together, spiced and stuffed into the animal gut. Then the sausages were hung in a cool place often for several months. The chamber had to be occassionally heated by burning wood so the sausages were cold smoked as well.
