A large sausage made from a mixture of beef and pork and very popular in Britain during the 17th and 18th centuries - although seldom seen now.
The sausages were/are highly-seasoned before being hot smoked, so keep well - then cooked in boiling water when required. It's name is probably derived from Polonia (the old name for Poland) - but some think it's a corruption of Bologna, also famous for its sausages.
