Why are they called Landjaeger?
It is a type of sausage, traditionally made with pork, beef, and spices, whose name is derived from a German expression “lang tige” which means “smoked for a long time and air-cured for a long time.” The German word “Jäger” means “hunter,” which is linked to its tradition as food consumed by hunters because it could.
Landjäger tastes nothing like dry salami. Eaten straight from the deli, it goes well with a cold beer. As a meal, landjäger sausage can be boiled and served with potatoes and fresh greens. To reduce the fat, poke holes through the casing of your landjäger before you boil it.
