Doktorskaya kolbasa

Wednesday, 15 April 2020

Russian Докторская колбаса (Doctor’s sausage) had it’s origins in the United States.

The Bolsheviks mismanaged food production resulting in a widespread famine, so in 1936 Josef Stalin sent his food industry administrator to find out what the Americans were doing. Anastas Mikoyan found a lot of bologna.

Here is the exact recipe of Doktorskaya kolbasa that was used as industry standard from 1936 till 1974:

Quantities of ingredients to produce 100 kg of Doktorskaya kolbasa:

    • 25 kg of beef meat
    • 70 kg of semi-lean pork meat
    • 3 liters of milk
    • 2 liters of eggs
    • 2 kg of salt and 200 gr of sugar
    • 30 gr of cardamom
    • 50 gr of ascorbic acid (color stabilizer)

Manufacturing technology included dicing and mixing all ingredients in a homogenous paste, filling the tubes and later drying and boiling the sausage. Final product was incredibly tasty and quite healthy.

At least it was tasty and healthy enough for those who hadn’t starved to death during the famine, or slaughtered during Большой террор.

Saturday Matinee – Food Preparation Tricks, Messer Chups, The Raybeats & Dick Dale

Saturday, 11 April 2020

Wish I’d known about these great shortcuts back when I was eating cold Hormel Chili out of the can. [Vid found here.]

Messer Chups cranks some electric surf, and yeah, they’re Russian.

Oleg Gitaracula (Oleg Fomchenkov) – Guitar
Zombierella (Svetlana Nagaeva) – Bass
Rockin Eugene (Evgeny Lomakin) – Drums

“While Messer Chups’ mostly instrumental sound is hard to neatly categorize, it’s safe to say that it would be embraced by fans of rockabilly, horror punk, vintage surf records, Italian slasher films, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Pulp Fiction, lounge music, the theremin, The Cramps, and the theme song from The Munsters.”

That group reminded me of the Raybeats. Their album Guitar Beat is awesome. I have it on vinyl.

Listening to Dick Dale while driving results in a speeding ticket every time. (Don’t ask me how I know.)

Have a great Saturday and a peaceful Easter Sunday.
