Palingworst can be considered a variety of the cooked sausage, the difference being the succulent and coarse mouthfeel which the consumer experiences when eating this product. In addition, the presence of a smoky flavor is an important characteristic of palingworst.


Palingworst, which literally means 'eel sausage', contains absolutely no fish of any kind. Presumably, whoever named palingworst saw many similarities with the fish product. The sausage maker mixed coarse pieces of fat into the sausage, which in terms of mixture had much in common with the traditional cooked sausage. During the subsequent cooking/smoking process, this fat fused into the other components of the mixture quickly. This resulted in a more fatty sausage, which felt 'as smooth as an eel' to the touch. On the other hand, the succulent bite also had similarities to the eel. Finally, this sausage, just like eel, is also smoked.
