Dry sausages are a must-have item on every family table. They are made with the use of unique recipes, which, combined with the appropriate heat treatment, determine their unique taste and aroma. Needless to say, dry sausages are among the most popular cold cuts with Poles. They are eaten both cold and hot. They will work well as part of a charcuterie board, but they can also be used to prepare a variety of hot dishes.
Sausage – key information
Sausage in Poland is available in many variants – no wonder it is so popular. Those made in accordance with iconic recipes, with the use of high-quality ingredients, are the most highly regarded. Much can be said about its taste and aroma. However, it is worth getting to know its history.
The origin of the word "sausage" is not entirely clear. It is estimated that in Poland it was used as early as half a thousand years ago. Interestingly, the first sausages, made several hundred years ago, are similar in shape to those produced today. Sausages, both then and now, were made by stuffing the meat into the intestine. This is because the intestine acts as a natural casing that makes it possible to form rings of minced or chopped meat. In addition, Polish sausage in this form is easy to store and process.

Żywiecka sausage is one of those cold cuts whose flavour and aroma are reminiscent of those made at home by grandparents and great-grandparents. The excellent taste of Żywiecka sausage is a result of combining top-quality pork and a blend of aromatic spices. As much as 125g of meat is used to produce 100g of sausage! Devoid of phosphates, colourings and monosodium glutamate, it is not only aromatic, but also extremely tender. Żywiecka sausage is an excellent idea not only for a snack but also for a sandwich.
Juniper sausage does not only mean a unique flavour and aroma. It contains as much as 154 g of pork in 100 g of a ready product! Its unique flavour is emphasized by juniper berries, which, combined with carefully selected pork, garlic and pepper, have created a product with an exquisite and extremely characteristic flavour. The secret of its flavour and aroma lies in the minimalism of spices as well as in the already mentioned berries. All this makes it a must-have on the Polish table!
Juniper sausage is a perfect snack for any occasion – thanks to proper thermal treatment, it does not require refrigeration, so you can always have it with you. What also distinguishes it is its form – it is available in the form of a traditionally dark smoked ring.
Hunter's sausage is extremely popular due to its unique flavour and aroma. 154 g of pork meat is used to produce 100 g of hunter's sausage. The key to the success is not only high-quality pork, but the carefully matched spices, in the right proportions. Garlic, pepper and a hint of juniper play a key role. Another interesting variant is hunter's sausage with mushrooms, which evokes the atmosphere of the forest, the campfire, and encourages eating outdoors. Hunter's sausage is smoked and subjected to a long, careful process of drying and baking. This is what gives it not only such a unique aroma, but also perfect tenderness. Importantly, it is another sausage product that does not require refrigeration, so you can take it anywhere – to work, school, for a walk or on a longer trip. The hunter's sausage by the Duda Nasz Polskie brand is the most popular sausage with Poles in its category.
Krakowska Dry Sausage and Krakowska Dry Poultry Sausage
Dry sausage, depending on the variant, can be produced from both pork and poultry meat. The Duda Nasz Polskie brand range includes both Krakowska Dry Sausage and Krakowska Dry Poultry Sausage. The short composition of the dry sausage allows for recalling the flavour and aroma of cold cuts produced in accordance with iconic recipes. The additives that determine the characteristic flavour and aroma are garlic and pepper. The smoking process is also important. Dry sausage is dried for a long time. Perfect for sandwiches, although it can also be an ingredient of hot dishes.
Popular dish – oven roasted sausage
Oven roasted sausage is one of the most popular dishes. It enjoys such great popularity due to the unique flavour of the dish, but, above all, because of its simplicity. Slashed and roasted with potatoes and coloured onions, it makes for a unique dinner dish for every occasion. Oven roasted sausage can be prepared in many ways – there is practically no way to spoil this dish. All kinds of vegetables will be a perfect addition to it. What is more, it can be roasted not only in the oven, but also on the grill.
How many calories does sausage have?
The calorie content of a sausage is closely related to its type. Among the sausages with the lowest calorie content is Krakowska Dry Sausage, which has energy content of 235 kcal/100 g. Hunter's Sausage and Juniper Sausage are slightly richer in calories, with 357 and 354 kcal/100 g, respectively.
