Sausage Making - THEN

 

In the cold of the early Canadian winter, butchering was an annual affair. On the farm, the large animals raised for the family's meat were killed, dressed out, and preserved in a number of ways. Heedful of the injunction to "use every part of the pig except the squeal," and considering the real need to waste nothing, sausage-making put to use all the scraps and bits that were too small for salting and smoking. And it offered an opportunity to preserve delectable flavors for all manner of dining long-past the cool butchering season. Alice Ross, Food Historian

 

And - NOW

 

Sausage making continues to thrive throughout the country and especially robust in our own Fraser Valley with its rich heritage of European families who have transplanted the centuries old traditions of sausage making from the old country.

 

The CHALLENGE: The Best Sausage In The Land

 

In its quest to discover the finest and tastiest sausage in the land, the Fraser Valley Food Show is inviting all sausage makers from far and wide to bring forth their creations and be discovered and branded The Best Sausage In The Land
