of sausages all over the world. Lots of people are even trying to make homemade sausages for them to control the fat content and make certain that only the best ingredients are added. Picking sausage Sausages may be either fresh or cooked. Types of fresh sausage include bratwurst, Italian sausage and kielbasa. They are labeled as fresh because they are merely seasoned ground meats and they are generally not cooked in the course of processing. You must cook them thoroughly ahead of serving. Cooked sausages in contrast are already cooked completely during processing. Wieners are an example of cooked sausages. A good sausage has an excellent balance of meat and fat. If it has too much of the former, the sausage will be dry and less flavorful once cooked. If it has too much of the latter, the sausage will be greasy. Cooking sausages There are different ways to cook sausage. Different kinds of sausage call for different preparation methods. Fresh sausage may be cooked in two methods: parboiled and then fried or grilled, or slow cooked inside a fry pan or grill. One strategy that you can employ to add a special taste to your fresh sausages is by parboiling them in beer as opposed to water prior to grilling.
