The confused boerewors. Images of Canberra

boerewors

So I came across this in Dickson Woolies yesterday.

We have a package of “The British Sausage Co”, claiming to be “uniquely Australian” in selling us a South African sausage?

Don’t get me wrong, I love a Boerewors and it’s a great way to cook sausage for large numbers. (it cooks in a spiral, turns easily, and then you chop to length when serving).

Do words mean nothing at all to these people?

I think you’re all confused. Let me clarify the messages on this package.

When the company making these sausages called themselves “The British Sausage Company”, ‘British’ wasn’t intended as a description of the sausage, but of the customer. They make sausages designed for the particular constitution of the guts of British immigrants to Australia, NOT sausages in a British style, as you all seem to be suggesting.

They are uniquely Australian insofar as the British immigrant to Australia has a slightly different constitution from his or her less adventurous compatriot, having been exposed to actual human food, unlike those Brits who’ve never left the UK.

You’re welcome.

It looks delicious. Is it as good as it looks?

Check into how those wars turned out.

True! But they became an independent republic fifty odd yeats ago. Such history in a sausage.

About the right amount of irony to get a hipster to start eating meat again.

This is very funny. I have seen it and have been reluctant to buy it (who the hell wants a BritishBoerie?) Haven’t managed to find decent boerewors in Canberra still order from Sydney

Great spot! But half a kilo for under $6? Apart from the confused provenance/ambiguous pedigree I’d want to know what actual meat makes up this delicacy. And I sometimes do buy meat for my husband, before any dismissive comments are made about my knowledge of same (meat, that is).

Also, I wonder what percentage of JB’s photography is devoted to meat, beer or rugby? It’s all good, but as you might say about that sausage, it seems to be everlasting.

Colonialism?

Do they do Cumberland sausage? This one also comes in a ring and can be cut to requirements. That’s a good old British sausage.

Forget nationality, I’m not paying $5.89 for mystery tube meat paste impersonates triple curler.

I’ve cooked one before. Yes, it turns really easy.

Does the British Sausage Co produce other products? Maybe they also sell Thai Tofu Sticks….
