Default Homemade Sausage

Does anyone else make their own?

A buddy and I have been doing this for the last couple of falls, working on our recipes and techniques.

We have made some improvements since we started, including adding a motor to the hang grinder, buying a separate stuffer and moving from synthetic to natural casings.

Here are a few pics from our latest efforts this past weekend.

1 - our grinder at work
2 - sliding the natural hog casing onto the stuffing tube
3 - that's a lot of sausage
4 - that looks tasty, eh?

We made about 40 lbs of our usual recipe, and another 30-35lbs of 2 other recipes.

We vacuum packed the works of it to freeze. Should last us for a couple of months.

Looks great!

A buddy of mine raises "wild hogs" on his property. We grind up a couple every year. Good Eats!

My grandfather was a butcher and made his own sausage for the family when I was a kid. I used to love to sit on a stool behind him and watch.
