Traditional sausage thread?
Traditional sausage thread.
Guatemalan longaniza and chorizo
Serbia, please explain how to eat this thing. It's fucking rock solid.
Literally everyone likes droge worst and beer, anon.
Nope, brazilians drink beer more than wine
It's Southconers who are the prissy winedrinkers
Is it common in your country to eat tongue sausage?
Verpiss dich aus unserem Land du scheiß Musel...
Der Islam gehört definitiv nicht zu Deutschland...
In some places more than others. Summer sausage and salami are more popular in Midwestern states and in Italian neighborhoods. They're usually placed on a plate with sliced sharp cheddar to make a yummy game-day platter.
Kek.. When you put 'droge' in front of 'worst' the 'sausage' connotation completely forces away the best/worst connotation it has in English.
>Is it common in your country to eat tongue sausage
No, though you can buy it at butchers and even some supermarkets.. It's not something you see in many lunchboxes.
>I just feel like equines have been so important to human history
I also feel this way, I mean if it weren't for horses we wouldn't have antibiotics. Oh wait it's a fucking dumb animal no smarter than a cow.
>I just feel like equines have been so important to human history that we shouldn't eat them.
History being the correct term, and all the historically relevant horses are dead now. Also, dogs taste like shit.. If they tasted ok we would probably eat those as well.
Also, don't most horses end up in glue factories in the US after they've outlived their usefullness as a pet or riding/racing horse? Is that better than eating them?
>Tell them it's bison
Or just don't specify.. In Dutch a 'biefstuk' is a steak, and a 'paardenbiefstuk' is a steak from a horse. But there's no law or linguistic rule that prevents you from selling horse steak as just 'biefstuk'... There was a famous café in Amsterdam, widely appreciated for it's simple inexpensive steak meal (steak+fries and salad for <€10,-, which is quite a fucking thing in Amsterdam)... The fact that they served horse steaks rather than beef steaks was a public secret for years, untill the local paper published an article in which they had a sample DNA tested or something..
Apparantly horse tastes a lot like beef when you cook it like a steak.
>Oh wait it's a fucking dumb animal no smarter than a cow.
Pretty much this. A bit smarter perhaps, but not a lot.. Pigs are MUCH more intelligent than both, and we have no qualms about locking them up in tiny shacks covered in their own shit.
Also, horses have the delicious property of becoming MORE tender as they age, rather than chewy.. So you can ride it all it's life and then still have a deliciously juicy steak or sausage at the end.
We used horses for travel and nailed metal to their hooves for thousands of years. Think about the Silk Road, or riding on horseback into battle, or hauling plows on farms, or towing a carriage.
Europeans have been doing this for centuries before the US were even discovered, and horses have pretty much always been eaten.. It's just Brits that don't, and I think they passed their squemishness on to the US.
>or hauling plows on farms, or towing a carriage.
If only cattle could do shit like that, oh wait.
>or riding on horseback into battle
this is the only thing they are good for, but only because tigers don't let us ride them.
Even so, I don't see how that would mean we wouldn't eat them.. We've used cows in much the same manner, yet 'Oxen sausage' is still a delicacy in Amsterdam. These days mostly made of 'normal' cows, in the old days the sausages would be made from the Oxen that hauled goods into the city, and were often not taken back but sold as meat... Not doing the same with horses seems arbitrary imo.
>not eating horse meat
you yanks should try it, it's very tasty
If foie gras is illegal in any region of your cunt, you pretty much live under a tyranny.
(blue is illegal, red is foie gras producers)
>Apparantly horse tastes a lot like beef when you cook it like a steak.
I never tried horse meat, but I eat a lot of different animals, beaver, wild turkey, bear, raccoon, etc. I would guess that horse meat is tougher than cow meat. The muscles from animals that are used less often are always more tender. Horses move around more than cows, so it must be the way they cook it that makes it more like cow meat.
>The muscles from animals that are used less often are always more tender. Horses move around more than cows, so it must be the way they cook it that makes it more like cow meat.
Horse actually becomes more tender with age and exercise
>What is Horse Meat Like?
Horse meat is lean. It is a deeper red than beef. The meat is described as somewhat more fibrous than beef, and slightly more gamey tasting, although some people describe it as sweeter. Unlike beef or pork, horse meat is said to become tastier and more tender the older the animal is.
Yes, I love it.
Sadly on of the few great things that comes out of Slavonija these days
>Eating horses is equal to eating dogs
If your ancestors are European they were commonly eaten before the crusades. Beef wasn't originally eating because it produced milk and acted as a tractor. Dog on the other hand is gross since its a carnivore/omnivore.
no this is hypocrisy
eating a dog or any kind of intelligent mammal capable of feeling pain and fear carries the same moral price
if this bothers you consider becoming a vegetarian
if you don't really care about eating a cow or a pig then it's hypocrisy to care about eating a dog or a horse
>Eating horses is equal to eating dogs
Except horse tastes good, and dog taste like shit by virtually all accounts..
>They have been our allies since humanity was in its infancy
So have cows, sheep, goats and countless other animals we eat.
Most of the patè you see in this country is made of pigs liver... I especially like the variant with pepper in it.
>So have cows, sheep, goats and countless other animals we eat.
This is because we bred cows, sheep and goats specifically to be our food source
There is nothing hypocritical about eating an animal that was literally made to be eaten and not eating ones that weren't
>This is because we bred cows, sheep and goats specifically to be our food source
We've used cows, sheep and goat for more than just eating them, most notably for dairy and whool. We've also used cows as beasts of burden, like we do horses... The distinction between them is completely arbitrary.
>There is nothing hypocritical about eating an animal that was literally made to be eaten and not eating ones that weren't
But like I said: We've always eaten them.. When horses become too old, or break a leg, they become food. That's pretty much the way of the world... The UK and other Anglo states are literally the only exception.. It just seems silly to me.. Especially knowing how well horses do as sausages.
It's not that black and white my dear American friend, especially back in the day before modern farming.
Cows are valued for their milk mostly.
Male calves are the ones that get eaten the most.
Sheep are also mainly used for their wool.
Pigs are pretty much exclusively used for their meat though I'll give you that.
>Pigs are pretty much exclusively used for their meat though I'll give you that.
They use pigs hair in many things these days.. Don't google it if you ever want to eat bread from a supermarket again without thinking OINK OINK..
You just made bread from the supermarket more appetizing t b h
>Cows are valued for their milk mostly
still a food source
>Sheep are also mainly used for their wool.
The difference is that we harvest them for resources, while we use Horses as our workforce/transport/companions.
I eat it, but the idea that E920 ('flour enhancer') which is present in many baked goods can be made from human or pig hair is still slightly disturbing to me.. To me, all animals are food.. But hair and nails form the exception to that rule, imo, at least mentally.
>The difference is that we harvest them for resources, while we use Horses as our workforce/transport/companions.
I really don't see the different m8.. Animals are animals, and humans use animals until they're no longer useful, and then we eat them. That's literally the way of the world, and has always been the way of the world.. There is no reason for Brits and Yanks to suddenly change the rules after fuck knows how many thousand years.
Well we don't use horses for anything these days.
Surely you realize your logic isn't sound. Nothing is stopping you from keeping sheep or chickens as pets.
Hell a pig is actually more intelligent than most dog breeds and could probably be even more intelligent if we had generations of genetic pressure on it to be a good smart pet.
Also would you object from eating certain kinds of breeds of pigs because they were breeded to be pets?
Would you object to eating coyotes or certain small wildcats?
IMO either they're all acceptable to eat, or none of them are.
I don't make exceptions about which mammal it's ok to murder and consume and which mammal it isn't.
>Also ox meat is tough and shit anyway.
That's why you turn them into sausage..
Also, I think I found the reason why Americans are so squemish: Religious lunacy with a healty dose of Judaism:
>According to a 2012 study, horse meat was regarded as 'pagan' food by early Christians. So our distaste for horse meat has its roots in the teachings of early Catholic church. The study suggests that the worship and eating of horses was frowned upon by the early church and rather than integrate the practice, as was done with so many other pagan practices, such as many Christmas and Easter traditions, it was condemned by Pope Gregory III. It was not reverence for the animal that inspired this, but a desire to quell the rituals of horse worship.
>Jewish tradition forbids the consumption of horse meat because they are not ruminants, and they do not have cloven hooves. Muslim tradition strongly discourages the consumption of horse meats.
Horse becomes more tender as they age. One of the reasons why they're such ideal eating: You can use them as beasts of burden throughout their life, and if they become too old or break a leg, DINNER!
But the meat of a working horse is worse than the one who NEET'ed until is death.
The only motif it's still somehow good it's because horse is godly meat to start.
Nowdays, working/companions/whatever don't end in plates, there are specifically raised one for that.
>Nowdays, working/companions/whatever don't end in plates, there are specifically raised one for that.
Actually most of the horses that go to slaughter here did live their life as pets/companions/whatever.. I heard that in Eastern Europe there's quite a few meat-horse farming though. Apparantly breeding horses for meat is inefficient though, as they need too much food & water per kg of meat compared to cows.
As it so happens, here's a random pic of the typical form factor of sausages here...
Pork, wild boar, moose.
Countries who don't eat it aren't white tb.h
We literally have a dish that's everything in the pig put into one stew
>I'll never go to a rural French village, hunt some wild boar with my mates, and sit eating herb-cured saucisson and drinking shitty wine while staring at the gently swaying trees of the forest
it's stronger than beer and doesn't make you want to go to the toilets every 10 minutes
damn that's really a feminine drink, not strong and gives a reason for women to go the toilets like they always do.
Here's a dish with all of the fucking pig.
I don't drink alcohol.
Wanting to evade the hardship of life by taking substances is very feminine.
Enjoy your life being culturally conditionned to think wine is a woman drink, m8
It is common knowledge, not a meme.
...to begin with, we weren't really talking about getting smashed, but rather: accompanying snacks. But I guess all this estrogen has hindered your capabilities to take part in a conversation.
>not eating horse

You are missing out.
>tfw no annual killing of the pig with your family because dad got in a fight with an uncle and won't talk to eachother no more
i just wanted to eat some delicious home prepared meat all year long
