Traditions and customs from A to Z

Old but delicious. Ahle Wurscht.

Ahle Wurscht ('old sausage') is a cured pork sausage matured over a long period and a traditional delicacy from the north of Hessen. The slow air-drying process lasting between three and twelve months gives the sausage its distinctive character. At the Ahle Wurscht Museum at the Landfleischerei Koch butchers in Kassel-Calden you can see some of the equipment used to make the sausages.
