    That is very cool! Pretty neat to read about the old days. Need to get some Freeze em pickle lol. They hung there sausage for a lot longer than we do now!
  6. Thanks Tom...this should be an interesting read.
  7. I have some seasoning recipes that theoretically reproduce the Zanzibar blends for pork and beef, according to the original poster of the recipes. How accurate they are is a separate matter, but license to produce the seasonings still exists, and the recipes were allegedly from a former Heller employee who made the blends, daily.
