Sausage in Profile: Apple Cinnamon-Spice Sausage

While the concept of sausage is simple, thousands of variations can be found throughout the world. Sausages can be fresh, cured, smoked, or cooked. They are made of beef, pork, veal, chicken, and more. And they can include myriad ingredients, from spices and herbs to fruits, vegetables, and cheeses—and even liquids such as beer, whiskey, or blood. Our “Sausage in Profile” series aims to introduce you to different types of sausage—their flavor profiles, histories, and uses—from familiar favorites to unique finds.

Whether you want a juicy sausage to enjoy on the grill while you still can, or if you’re looking for a way to bring on the flavors of fall, we have the answer for you: Lobel’s Apple Cinnamon-Spice Sausage.
