Walking down the grocery aisle last night and I was shocked to see not only pickled sausage in a jar but a variety of pickled sausage types were available. Even though they displayed the aesthetics of a pig fetus in a jar of formaldehyde and showed a sodium content high enough to put my blood pressure into the danger zone, I went ahead and bought a jar to bring into work.
We all tried it. There was one guy who declined to finish his piece but everyone else managed to consume their entire portion of pickled meat. And it wasn't that bad. Definitely not as bad as what you'd think just looking at the jar. I wouldn't buy it again but it's not something I regretted immediately after eating or even half an hour after eating.
One guy from the shop was pretty excited to partake in the pickled sausage. He said we should definitely try pickled beef heart. I will update as this incredibly weird adventure continues.
