Summer Sausage is a term for a fermented sausage that doesn't need refrigeration until after you've opened it, making it a convenient and delicious piece of meat. It has a long shelf life due to its low pH and slow bacterial growth, and it's effortless to prepare. Our summer sausage is sugar-free and has very few ingredients to prolong the shelf life. The only ingredients are beef, spices, and citric acid.
This meat usually pairs well with cheese and crackers. The best pairings are with mild cheeses and crackers that will complement but not overpower the flavor of the meat. Mild cheeses, such as Gouda, Monterrey, Colby Jack, or Cheddar, are perfect to pair with it. Mild crackers such as saltines or soda are also a great pairing.
The biggest benefit is that it's convenient because it doesn't need to stay cold to keep, so feel free to keep this sausage unopened in the pantry until you want to eat it. Our summer sausage comes in a 12-ounce package and comes smoked and cooked from our 100% grass-fed beef cuts, so you know it's going to be a delicious taste experience.
