Crispy crackers made to our master butcher's secret recipe. First-class quality from Austria.
When the name says it all - then it can only be about the (knackwurst. Because its trademark is its incomparable cracking sound as soon as you bite into it.
In order for this wonderful moment of sound pleasure to occur, it needs to be made perfectly. This requires a finely chopped, emulsified sausage meat that must be firm and light at the same time. This is a craft that only very special Fitmeat master butchers have mastered.
How the Knackwurst became so popular
The Knackwurst is bulky, self-confident and has a lot of crunch! The Knackwurst also has a whole range of different names. It was popular above all because of the relatively low price, which was needed for the high pleasure. Accordingly, people in Vienna also like to jokingly refer to it as the "civil servant's trout".
The unmistakable taste of Knackwurst
Apart from the characteristic cracking sound, it is of course also the taste that counts, and this is phenomenal. Our Knackwurst is classically made from beef and pork and refined with fine spices. A wonderfully fine and noble taste is therefore guaranteed.
This makes it a must in every good sausage salad, vinegar sausage or as a delicious ingredient in potato casseroles. Of course, if you need to eat them more quickly, you can also enjoy them cold with a little mustard!
Herkunft und Haltung
At Fitmeat, the highest quality and species-appropriate animal husbandry are top priorities. That is why 100% of the animals come from small farms in Austria. The farms are located in Lower Austria, the Waldviertel, Salzburg and neighbouring Upper Austria.
As we distance ourselves from long transport routes and factory farming, we have the animals respectfully butchered individually by our partner butchers in the immediate vicinity of the farms (max. 15 minutes transport distance) or directly on the farm.
We also have close and personal contact with the farmers and work exclusively with butchers who know both farmer and animal personally. Our master butchers cut each animal into the finest parts and allow them to mature selectively. This is not only true for our steaks, but also for ham, sausages and bacon!
These are carefully prepared and refined by hand by our master butchers according to the original recipe. The result? Sausages of the highest quality for a fabulous enjoyment experience.
