Handl Landjäger

Filed under: Buy - Order Online,Raw Hard Cured Sausage — admin @ 10:36 am

The origin of the Landjäger raw sausage is located in the federal state of Voralberg, in the outermost western part of Austria. In that part of Austria the sausages were used as long-lasting snack during work in the fields or walks in the mountains.
Nowadays the Landjägers are popular in the whole south of the German speaking area (Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Switzerland and Austria).

The sausage manufacturer Handl from Tyrol was able to create a very special version of the Landjäger. The manufacture only takes place after a very careful selection of the raw materials from the pork and the beef. After addition of traditional spices, the raw material is pressed in special forms. The Landjäger becomes its shape while staying three days there. After the three days the Landjägers were smoked over beech wood. After that the sausages are matured and dried for one whole week.

Harmonical spices are the reasons for the substantial and nourishing flavour of the Landjäger. The long shelf life is secured by the large-scale smoke and drying process of the Tirolean sausage manufacturer Handl.
