Weiner Month

I know, you thought, because of recent news headlines that June was Weiner Month.
Well, think again.
There is actually a National Hot Dog & Sausage Council. They have a website, hot-dog.org…I am not making this up..
The Council sponsors July as National Hot Dog Month. It could be the reason why Hot dogs are served on the Fourth of July.
They even have a photo contest you can enter (By June 17th).
Don’t know anything about hot dogs? Try this site for a quick course.
They were originally called frankfurters, because one of the most popular sausages of the middle ages was made in Frankfurt Germany.
Why Weiners?
Well, another popular sausage from the same time was made in what we now call Vienna, Austria.
It used to be called Wein, thus the sausage was a weiner, because it originated in that city.
All this information and more can be found at the sites linked in this post.
Enjoy reading and have a “dog” for the fourth. Take in a ball game. Real Americana…
Good eating.
