The following article includes information on German Sausage, where to get it and a recipe. (Which I have yet to try). I have also included my Grandmother’s personal recipe for summer sausage. I hope you enjoy. If you try it, please let me know!

The recipe is from the NDSU German’s From Russia Heritage Collection:
Finally, I promised the above mentioned follower that I would post Grandma Weisbeck’s summer sausage recipe. So, without further adieu, here it is! ENJOY AND BON APPETIT!
