I had a couple guys ask me for my sausage recipies so I figured I would put a couple of them up here. If there are other recipies people would be interested in, if I got them, I will put them up.
Sweet Italian type 10 lbs meat ( best if you use at least 50% pork) 4 tablespoons salt 2 cups ice water 2 ½ tablespoons fennel seeds – lightly crushed 3 teaspoons coarse black pepper 2 tablespoons white sugar 1 tablespoon brown sugar
If you want a spicy sausage, use the same recipe but add: 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper 2 tsp. caraway seed 1 tablespoon coriander
If by chance you wanted to try a breakfast sausage: 22-24 mm casing 6.5 lbs of pork, 3.5 lbs game meat 4 tablespoons salt 1 tablespoon ground white pepper 2.5 tablespoons sage 1teaspoon ground ginger 1 tablespoon nutmeg 1 tablespoon thyme 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper 2 cups ice water
I know very little about trapping but I might be able to help out in the sausage making department. ;D
Try the recipes at the end of this post, I don't think that you'll be disappointed.
We are going to make ten pounds of Dexter Beef sausage tonight. As long as my OH doesn't put a greasy thumb on the lense, there's going to be a rough guide as to what we do, along with compulsory photographs.
We kicked in with about 8lb of Dexter stewing beef and just over 2lb of boned belly pork.
We then proceded to put it through an electric meat mincer that my Mrs bought me a few Christmas's ago.
Our Rob ( my youngest son) the reluctant film star. Thats him putting the belly pork through.
Once we had minced the meat twice and mixed the ingredients together we put the mince into this sausage stuffer and pushed it into the sausage skins
The start of the process . How to do it would simply need a very short video clip and I havent got one
We made three different types of sausage tonight and here they are hanging up to dry for a bit. We have a few of them in the Rayburn as I speak and I'm just killing a little time showing you what went on while they cook ;D Yummy.
Here are a couple of recipes that I've thought up and used to good effect
For a nice Madras Sausage
You need 4lb of skinned and boned belly pork 3 chopped onions. 1 table spoon coriander seeds 1 tea spoon of black pepper 1 table spoon of chilli powder 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 4 oz of desiccated coconut 1 Heaped table spoon of curry powder 1 level tea spoon of tumeric A woosh of salt to taste .
You do . Put the belly pork through the mincer once Mix all the ingredients and the mince Put the mixture through the mincer again . Put all of it into the sausage skins .
Heres the second one 3lb of boned belly pork 3 skinned and chopped onions 3 peeled and cored desert apples from the fruit bowl Bread crumbs from 8 slices of brown bread. Half a tube of tomato puree
THE SPICES. It depends how you like your sausages . You can tone it up or tone it down to suit your taste . I put in -
Table spoon of Paprika Table spoon of Cayenne A sprinkling of cracked black peppers a teaspoonful of fennel seeds A good woosh of salt to taste !
All the above ingredients were put into a bowl and mixed. Then the mixture was put through the mincer twice before being put into the skins.
Thanks Bodger. That's the same stuffer I used to have. I wore out the plastic gear on it and bought one with metal gears now. Works well. As for linking the casings, there are a couple tricks I found to work well for me. The first is to not stuff the casing too tight. If you leave it a little lose, it has less of a tendency to split when you link it. When you are linking, until you have done a lot, use a point of reference, like a dowel or something that shows the length you need. Lastly, when rolling the links, spin every other one in the same direction, which will in turn twist the link before it in the opposite direction. As Bodger said, a video is much better. Maybe this winter I will put one up.
Looking forward to trying out these new recipes. Thank you.
