    It's that time of the year so why not make sausage?
    I cut up 12.5 # of pork butt and coarse grind it with 5# of pork fat. It's the perfect blend for sausage that's neither too dry or too fatty.
    Separate it into 3 piles and add the seasoning blends mixed with 1/2 cup of water so they are evenly distributed. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to develop.
    Rinse out the casings, thread them on the feeder tube and start making links.
    I did my Grandpa's Polish recipe, English Bangers and Nuremberg sausages.
    Pop them in the vacuum sealer, freeze and they're ready to go.

    I only took a picture of the finished product- you know the old adage about nobody wanting to see sausage actually being made, only the finished product.

    Nice :thumbup2:

    Sausage seems like a lot of work to make, but I'm sure it's worth it.

    Wish someone in my family was into making sausage, would like to try some.

    It's quite easy and a fun group activity- like making pierogis.
    If you have a grinder that's half the battle. A Kitchen Aid mixer does it.
    To stuff efficiently, you need one of these.

    My BLTs look sad now.

    I tip my hat to you sir as I’ll never get to your level.
