Venus Cured Sweet SausageGolden World Food
These cured sweet Chinese sausages are made right here in Los Angeles. What unifies all kinds of Chinese sausage is an extremely sweet flavor and an emulsified texture that makes even the fresher links taste like meat candy.
Because the meat's dryness and intensity in flavor, the sausage is often used as a flavor component in other dishes. Links are diced and rendered, until only a hint of the actual sausage is left. Chinese sausage shows up in turnip cake, for instance and a variety of other snacks like the various deep-fried taro root concoctions.
