Traditionally, this kind of sausage is made by using butcher shop leftovers, which are mixed with herbs, spices and salt. Subsequently, the ‘rookworst’ is dried and then smoked, which gives the product its name (which translates as 'smoked sausage').Read more: Smoked sausage products
A knockwurst looks a bit like a hot dog. A traditional knockwurst differs with it's crunchier bite. In the Netherlands, this product is popular at lunch or as a snack.
Just like the hot dog, the knockwurst is derived from the German Frankfurter, and is therefore actually a Dutch variety. It is smaller in size than a smoked sausage. When breaking the traditional knockwurst variety, there is a 'knack' sound, which gave the sausage its Dutch name (knakworst), which was corrupted in English to become knockwurst.
