The history of sausages and other meat products goes back more than two thousand years. The first mention of them in Literature was in the ancient Greek play «The Sausage», created in 500 BC. Later, this word was often found in the letters of the Greeks; in the era of Catholicism, it was often included in the diet of believers. Meaning of the word “sausage” comes from the Latin “salsus” (salty). At that time, it was not possible to cool and freeze the meat, so people used different methods to preserve it, and one of the ways to keep it edible was deli sausage. Nowadays, this tasty product transformed from a kind of necessary measure to world-famous delicacy appreciated by true food lovers.
