That sort of stuff with added water usually tastes like dog food. You have to be wary of anything that says "continental" anything on its label. It usually mean it's some god-awful crap made up of factory rejects that end up on a slice of something. Much better go for something that is actually chorizo, saucission, calzione or suchlike. If it just says "continental" or is something generic it's probably dreadful ultra-processed crap.
From one site it appears that you would have to get at least 0.5 cups of apple seeds, grind them up and swallow immediately; if you delay the swallowing the cyanide gas disperses quickly. Your body can handle small doses quite quickly as well.
I've started giving some thoughts towards securing tickets for Le Mans this year. I haven't been for several years and I was looking forward to sampling some of the local specialities such as rillettes and andouillettes, I remembered I was quite partial to the latter.
Unfortunately I found myself googling them, and I now find myself a lot less keen now that I know what goes into them. Intestines and tripe and so on.
Just goes to show, when it comes to sausages you're really better off no knowing what goes in them...
Andouillette was once sampled by my husband. We were en route South through France, and stopped at a roadside truck stop. He decided that he had to have a real French speciality..
Long story short, the Andouillette arrived, was cut into, the smell of pig poo was so shocking that those of us not eating it turned green. Hubby took a deep breath and ate a mouthful, turned very pale, and ate nothing else for 24 hours. He just kept saying that he could still taste it for hours.
It was a countryside Andouillette, and not something from a Supermarket, maybe that makes a difference. But the intestine in the one we had was not cleaned out,
Having eaten Schweinshaxe in Germany I once opted for the pigs trotter in a French restaurant expecting something similar. What a mistake, it was just a boiled pigs foot, bones and all, with some shitty sauce. I ate it just to save face but it was disgusting.
