Trend-O-Meter Says: Landjäger Is In (10/2/09)

Think of them of them as gourmet Slim Jims: Bavarian hunting sausages, a.k.a. landjäger, have been spotted: at Grab specialty market in Park Slope, Brooklyn; on the menu at Prime Meats restaurant in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn; and done Russian style, sold in piles on top of the deli counter at New World Market in San Francisco. Good for skiing or backpacking, they’re handheld, smoky, salty, and dry. Buy them online here.
