Prinskorvar, "prince sausages"

Prinskorv, which directly translates to "prince sausage", is a small Swedish sausage which is often sold in links. Created in 1805 by Viennese butcher Georg Lahner, this dish is usually fried in a frying pan and served with a generous helping of mustard. The demand increases and reaches its peak during the Christmas season. At that time, stores usually have reserves to meet their customers' needs.

Serving[edit]

Traditionally made from spiced pork and veal stuffed in sheep casings, these mini-sausages are known for their crown-like cuts. They are a short variety of Vienna sausage. The Prinskorv is a popular component of the julbord and the Swedish Christmas smörgåsbord, along with ham, liver pate, potatoes, rice pudding, pickled beets, herring salad, various cheeses, bread, and different sweets.[1]

According to the Swedish food chain Hemköp, the Prinskorv is also a midsummer favorite[2] of Sweden's southern region. Enjoyed during afternoons and featured during their midsummer party after the summer solstice, this is usually served with Janssons frestelse, meatballs, pickled herring, crackers and salads.
