Ahle Wurst is a hard pork sausage made in northern Hesse, Germany. Its name is a dialectal form of alte Wurst – “old sausage”. Ahle sausage is a sausage made of pork meat and bacon and its made air-dried. The older the sausage is – the harder it is and I personally prefer medium hard version!

2. Currywurst

Currywurst is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup or a normal ketchup topped with curry powder. Here in Frankfurt, you can also find “Currywurst” made of Rindswurst (sausage made of beef), if you are a fan of beef sausages! Currywurst was invented by Herta Heuwer in Berlin in 1949. Apparently, she acquired ketchup and curry powder from British soldiers here in Germany. The dish was cheap, delicious and simple. She patented her sauce under the name “Chillup” in 1951.
