Medister. For Danish people this sausage needs no introduction, but odds are you're likely not of Scandinavian descent, so here's the skinny. This is a mild onion sausage with a fine grind, and flavours of allspice, nutmeg, coriander, ginger, and clove. Enjoyed all year round, Medister (or Medisterpølse) is a true comfort food typically shared during a get-together with good friends, family, and probably a wet dog somewhere in the midst.
(100% pork. Contains onion.)
Suggested Drink Pairing: A crisp pilsner beer would be best, but if you can get your hands on it (not impossible here in Ontario) try pairing this sausage with mead.
Suggested Side Dish: As we said above, this is comfort food, so it would be wise to keep the sides simple, and the kind that stick to your ribs. Simple mashed potatoes and some white cabbage braised or sauteed with a splash of cream, finished with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
