"My five year-old son was set to have some dental work done, and I was chatting with the dentist about preparing him for the big day.
'Best not to go into detail about what will be happening,' the dentist said. 'Just...tell him we'll do a bit of work and it will be over in a flash. Kind of like- You don't just go around telling people how sausage is made!'
You can imagine the laugh I choked back at this statement, because I do A LOT of going around and telling people how sausage is made...
Why don't we talk more about how sausage is made? Sausage is not a frightening food item! Dare I say, purer than a casserole?
Perhaps the industrial food complex can be blamed for stomach-turning concoctions of otherwise questionable scraps, ground to smithereens and punished with additives that cause us to bristle when we consider their origins. But...real sausage?
It is meat, fat, and salt y'all. That's all."
- from Pure Charcuterie by Meredith Leigh, p. 15
