Hot dogs and sausages are foods we are often told to avoid. The scraps of meat, organs, and fat of animals are ground, spiced, and formed into sausages and dogs.
But what if we looked at these meat options from a different perspective?
Traditionally, people used all of the animal:
organs (eaten whole or ground into sausage)
make bone broth for soup and then grind the bones into powder to fertilize the fields
use the hides for tanning leather, etc.
