We are able to attest to excellence of the "Ohlberg Sausage."
This is gourmet "soul food." Before retiring to Oregon,
during our career years in the Central Valley of California we made
regular visits to the Ohlberg Market in Fresno to stock up on their
meat products. In the interlude between the Ohlberg Market closing
and our discovering the availability of this sausage at Renna's
Meat Market, to get our fix we searched far and wide for a sausage
that might be comparable to this cuisine. Everything we tried paled
in comparison. We've lived in North Dakota (native's thereof), Kansas,
Ohio, Illinois and even "sausage heaven" Germany and have
not found anything to come even close to the Ohlberg Sausage. Now
that we live in Oregon, when we visit our daughter in Los Osos,
CA we often have an ice chest on board to fill up with sausage on
a swing through Fresno.
While on the subject, we have discovered a place in Texas that
produces out-of-this-world German smoke-dried-sausage (some people
call it jerky, which is like calling a Mercedes by the name Yugo).
We were introduced to this by California friends who are native
to a Germans from Alsace-Lorraine enclave near San Antonio. About
once each year we send a check to a meat market in Lacoste, Texas
and have them ship us a supply of their tantalizing smoke-dried
to use any images from the GRHC website may be requested
