Summer sausage is a slightly dry sausage, which is often produced with a mixture of beef and pork or all beef as is shown in the picture at the left. Various spices are added, most notably coriander. It is a member of the cervelat family of sausages and does not need to be cooked or refrigerated, thus the reason for the name in reference to being stored without the need for refrigeration. This sausage, also known as thuringer, is served as an appetizer, as a snack with bread and cheese, or as a sandwich meat.

Suet is a white, solid fat obtained from the area surrounding the kidneys of beef (and also sheep). It is used for the creation of dumplings and for several traditional English steamed puddings, such as steak and kidney pudding. It is also used in the manufacture of tallow candles. It was very popular at one time, but because of increased awareness of health problems associated with saturated fat, it is rarely used today. Suet is sold in large chunks or in a shredded form in small packets.
