Summer Sausage

9 inch summer sausage

Heartwood Farm summer sausage is smoky and delicious -- we're grateful to Brubacher Meats for keeping this traditional Mennonite recipe alive! Made from our 100% grassfed beef, our cloth bag summer sausage is naturally cured in a wood-fired smoke house. Gluten-free, but contains nitrates as required by law.

Storage: The cloth bag allows the summer sausage to breathe, and can be hung in a cool place to continue to dry and cure until it gets to your desired texture. To prevent it from getting dryer (and harder to slice), keep it in a plastic bag or airtight container in the fridge or freezer, pulling the cloth bag back as you slice and enjoy. It will easily keep for a year, but it never lasts that long in our house!
