Enjoying a traditional Swiss “Metzgete” and having fun…!
By the way, this “Metzgete” is truly "ladylike" and culinary on a very high level!
In Switzerland, “Metzgete” is known as the direct consumption of non-durable foods using all of the parts of the pig, especially blood and giblets, often in the form of sausages. The “Metzgete”, which takes place each Autumn, is a tradition that exists since the humans became sedentary and started breeding cattle. At the time, it was not possible to feed the entire herd throughout the winter. At the end of the season, it was essential to use as many products as possible, to show accountability towards the animals. In the past, and in order to preserve the meat, people used to either dry it or put it into salt. Later, deep freezing came as an additional way to keep the meat over longer periods of time. Each product which could not be preserved in one way or the other had to be used immediately. Thus, these were processed, among others, into blood and liver sausages, products which are still nowadays being consumed immediately and which are free from any preservatives. Before being consumed, both blood and liver sausages need to be boiled.
