My learning experiences/medical training at Fort Sam Houston included something called "combat nutrition" in which we learned that stuff like this food would probably make a soldier on garrison duty sick and would turn most anyone's stomach. However, if the cold war had ever turned hot and troops were fighting in bitter cold, this type of food would be a real lifesaver, providing essential fats, calories, and proteins. The rations of many countries during the 20th century and even now include such stuff, although the U.S. military seems to be fixated on providing sugar-free drink mixes in our rations. :?

Hi,
it sounds like rillettes (the "real" stuff found on country markets, not the low-fat-for-blondes canned version :wink: ) : fat and meat mixed together, lard and pork meat, duck in duck fat, goose... etc.
I don't know the Pomeranian version but in Poland and Ukraine there was a lot of fat and very little "solid" meat. I ate all of it anyway and I wasn't that sick after :lol:

:D open it and try it - it is no dog food, but my dog will like it too!
It is not bad, very tasty - corned meat. Much of fat - like the others minded here - for the cold war times - not comparable with modern nutritition standards.

Don`t worry, it is good - if it is not a "Pommersche Wurst" it is "Schmalzfleisch" and below this is the Name of the manufacturer: Pommersche Fleisch- und Wurstwarenfabrik GmbH :mrgreen:

best of luck,

"Schmalzfleisch" is a way far from "Russian dog food", it´s a deli all over here. Due to Wikipedia its called Head Cheese.

It has not more or less fat than a salami but it has a (very delicious) aspic around. We slice it and eat it on a slice of bread together with pickles.

If do you want to eat that particular ration, a review would be nice. The container has still a 4-digit zip code so it means it was made before 1993. On the picture I can´t read the "Hergestellt 199?" date exactly.

I *realy* like "Schmalzfleisch" in the EPas, you could swap it for everything. The civilian one is available in every store over here and we always have a jar of it in our fridge :D

Head cheese or Sülze, I love!
Makes a great sandwich!
I never saw the pate version before, though...
