Sausage Day

All of the elements are in place for making natural pork sausage this evening when I get home.

Here is my new Stuffer. Five pounds of meat at a time are put in and then cranked down into the sausage casing. All metal, no plastic parts are going to break on me.


We will be making our sausages with a recipe like this one. I know that we will probably be adding cheese to whatever we decide on, because my sweetie only will eat a bratwurst that has cheese in it. Won’t put any beer in my bratwurst, because I don’t believe that is what they mean by a beer bratwurst. The beer needs to be in the cooking liquid, instead. Then, when the sausages are cooked through, I reduce the cooking liquid down to a pasty sauce that I spread on the sausages. A few minutes on the grill or in the oven to brown that sauce and MAN, you got a meal. Sausages burst with flavor and juice then. Can’t wait to try my natural pork and ingredients sausages. If this works, it will be one more thing that I don’t have to buy in a box any more.

Here is a video of the process. It’s a long video, but it does show you the whole process including spicing and grinding the meat.
