Considered a comfort food, Falukorv is a popular cooked sausage which contains beef, pork, potato starch, onion and seasonings and is enjoyed any time of the year.

 

The history of falukorv reaches back to the Falun copper mine during the 16th and 17th century, where ox hide was used for ropes and some of the meat remaining after slaughter was salted and smoked and used for sausages.

 

The tradition of preparing the meat in this way was revitalised in the late 19th century by the butcher Anders Olsson, whose initiation led to the development of the modern falukorv, which uses a mixture of pork and beef or veal.
