These long, thin, German-style wieners are made from finely ground pork, beef, and veal that’s lightly smoked in natural casings. They are fully cooked, and while you can eat them cold, we think you’ll love them heated through, next to a scoop of potato salad.
Of course we don’t mind if you serve our wieners the American way—on a bun with your favorite condiments—but we much prefer the German way, with potato salad and mustard.
To heat, bring water to a boil, drop in wieners, cover, and turn down heat to very low. Let the wieners sit for 10 minutes until heated through. If you’re pressed for time, you can also wrap 1 or 2 in a damp paper towel and microwave for 1 minute.
Will keep up to 1 week after arrival if refrigerated in original vacuum-sealed packaging. Should packaging become loose—indicating an air leak—remove wieners immediately and wrap in paper towel.
You can freeze this item for up to 2 months without affecting flavor or quality. If frozen, defrost slowly in refrigerator; do not thaw at room temperature.
