The Mysterious Origins Of The Sausage

The ubiquity of sausages makes it hard to trace its first moments on Earth; sausages were a solution to a problem that every culture was likely to come up against.

Sausages were created originally for two reasons: One, to make use of every little piece of the meat, so nothing is wasted, and two, by using salt and smoking, it was a way to preserve it.

It begs to question how the first people to use intestines to pack the sausages bothered cleaning them first, or just rinsed them out a bit. Great article though, I love blood sausage!
