Title: Ryynimakkara  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Ryynimakkara (Finnish lit. "groat sausage") is a type of sausage in Finnish cuisine containing groats. Ryynimakkara has barley groats, about one fifth of its weight, lowering its meat and fat content. Also, the fat content is considerably lower than other sausages, usually between 10 to 15%. Traditionally, ryynimakkaras have been prepared with no meat at all.

The closest relatives to the ryynimakkara are the potato sausage (perunamakkara) from the Häme region of Finland, which has potato instead of the barley groats, blood sausages (verimakkara) and the black sausage (mustamakkara) from Tampere. The use of groats in the ryynimakkara is similar to the British black pudding although its appearance is different, being a thick and small sausage.
