On the 4th day of the gift guide AOA gives to you:
The gift of meat.
Naturally smoked sausage and meat spreads from Rolf's Pork Store. No fillers, no preservatives -- just homemade meaty goodness.
Who is it for?
Is there anyone on your list who gets those mall boxes of sausages and spreads? That's who this is for. But a basket from Rolf's is something any true carnivore would appreciate. They've got all kinds of naturally smoked meats, wursts, spreads, beef jerky, sausages and snacks to complete the package. They'll make up a basket for you, but they say people usually pick their favorite items and make their own.
Where can you get it?
Only at Rolf's shop at 70 Lexington Avenue, Albany.
Obviously the price is going to vary a bit depending on what you order, but for the taste, it's a good value. A few of the popular holiday gift items:
Tea-wurst -- (a pork and beef pate) will run you about 5.99 a pound (one costs about $3). Salamis are 11.99 a pound (one will cost around $7).
Home made German beef jerky (mild or hot) are about $2.50 a pair.
Rolf's also has smoked hams, chickens and turkeys and cold cuts for holiday parties. You'll also find all kinds of imported German chocolates and cookies if you're looking to add something for non- meat lovers.
Oh and a gift from Rolf's might go particularly with this 2008 gift guide selection.
