Doctor Sausage from Russia

Doktorskaya Kolbasa Doctor SausageThis is a simple sausage that took Soviet Russia by storm. In the early days of the USSR there were lots of food shortages, so the Russian Government sent a delegation to the USA to check out their sausage plants.

 

They settled on an exact facsimile of an Polony factory and along with doctors produced a sausage that was designed to help tummy problems as well as being nutritious. They decided on a simple recipe, no cereal, just meat salt and spices. The people loved this luxury sausage.

 

All was well until the late 1970’s when they decided to add cereal, and the resulting backlash, some say, led to the downfall of the Soviet Union.
