sausage in the world, measuring at 530 metres, was
presented in the Eastern Croatian town of Vinkovci by the
members of the `Slavonian Home Kulen-Kulin` association, as
part of the `Come to Vinkovci` project.
Hundreds of locals gathered in the main
square of Vinkovci in the country’ east and grilled the world
record sausage, made with 400 kilograms of pork (the meat
of 28 pigs), 40 kilos of paprika, 10 kilos of salt, 2.5 kilos
of spices and five kilos of garlic bought for a local farm,
the town hall said.
The sausage was fried in a vast 2.5-metre
pan and was distributed to Vinkovci citizens once it was done.
Other treats were available for the gathered crowd to enjoy,
such as home wine and doughnuts.
Organisers said it was the world's
largest sausage and could feed as many as 3,000 people,
but adding it was merely “training“ for next year when they
plan to produce a sausage measuring 1000 metres.
The previous world record for the longest
sausage was held by Romanians with a 392 metres long
