The Hamburger Gekochte is a hearty tasting, spreadable cooked sausage . The color varies between a mixture of light pink and brown tones, but it can also be of a darker shade.
The recipe for the Hamburg cooked was rediscovered in the 14th century, at the beginning of the Hanseatic era , and was further developed over time. Today's recipe is around 100 years old.
What is special about Hamburger Gekochen is that half of the fat portion, which traditionally consists of smoked or scalded pork belly, is again smoked cold in beech smoke the night before production. This gives the sausage its typical taste and stays spreadable longer. 100 grams of sausage contain an average of 30 grams of fat. The sausage dough is usually filled in natural casings.
