does anyone still make sausage
« on: December 11, 2016, 07:07:17 AM »
i used to raise a few hogs every year and built me a summer kitchen/butcher shop
in the barn. i no longer raise pigs . but from time to time still make
fresh sausage. i'll get a few large shoulder roasts and a hank of casings
and go to it,
i like to make old school way where the sausage has texture so to speak
not emulsified like the crap in the store.
kinds i make are
polish garlic sausage
polska kielbasa
kiska
portagee sausage
italian
andoullile
now the shop is a store room
and since i make small batches i do it in the house kitchen.

so who still makes sausage it is a art

I still make some fresh breakfast sausage from time to time.  Home made blend of spices with no sage in it.  Not a big fan of sage in my sausage.

We make summer sausage from ground venison and fresh bulk-style pork breakfast sausage, but unlike imnukensc, we use lots of sage in ours because we like the taste of it.  That's the beauty of building your own.......you have a choice in how it tastes. :duel:  ;)

We too make breakfast sausage, not a huge fall of sage, but I spice it up with green chilli. My first job out of high school was as a meat cutter. We made several kinds. Haystacker looks like you are quite creative.
Nice matters
