: Varies. (as low as $2 per pound).
: Vacuum packed and stable on the shelf for quite some time.
: More rice than meat.
Undercooked rice provides some "bite" to the pasty texture which is tightly packed into the casing.
: Mild to Medium. There is some heat.
An off-putting, kind of sweet, smell hits your nostrils before the link
hits your tongue. There is a distinct black pepper tasted and an
almost overpowering parsley punch to the pallett. In fact,
parsley very much defines the flavor of this link. The meast is
of the processed, pelletized, variety common in corporately, mass
produced, boudin/boudain from Texas for chain stores. Not
fantastic but not horrible.
They claim that this link is "heart healthy" (maybe that's what's
wrong with it). In Louisiana there is no reason to be eating a
link that is not from within the state. If you're outsiide of the
state, it is recommended that you come back to eat your boudin.
