single-servings of summer sausage? on 01/11/2011 08:14:57 MST Print View

Does anyone know of any pre-packaged single servings of summer sausage or any other kind of pre-cooked meat or sausage? It's such a mess to slice up a stick of sausage on the trail, and I have a hard time cutting it up in equal portions for each day. If there are no single servings available, would dividing a sausage into single servings before the trek be feasible? If so, would you use ziplock bags, plastics wrap, etc.?

I just toss one in a ziploc and eat on it until it's gone. I've taken 2-3 days to finish it off with no problem.

I've seen small packages of sausage at World Market, if you have one in your area.

Do you remember the brand name?

I might be going by WM today or tomorrow - will try to snap a photo. They carry a lot of good ones.

Also check out what Minimus carries:

The sausages on the Minimus site are the same ones World Market sells. Same three flavors as well. At least in my local World Market.

There is a similar store called Cost Plus Imports, and they used to stock tiny turkey sausages. I think they were in a 1-ounce size, and plastic-sealed, of course.

Cost Plus and World Market are one in the same. They have not changed all the CA stores to that name yet. Just a name change

Being the owner of a shiny new Food Saver, I'm wondering if it'd work to cut sections of a grocery store sized summer sausage and vacuum seal them.

(Cut using a reasonably well sterilized knife and cutting board)

OK! Just got back from town....yes, Cost Plus World Market carries the same ones as Minimus and are even cheaper - $1.49. The snausages are 1 3/4 ounces each. They also carry a nice salami that is 3 ounces for $2.99.

Picked up a bunch and will be doing a blog on them this week....
