Been a while since I made some sausages.. Dunno why.. It chills me right out.. Strange yet true!
And with this great piece of red ticket free range antibiotic free piece of shoulder it just cries ‘sausages!’..
Minced twice and a little extra pig day added..
The skins I picked up from my butchers , fresh these ones! Still need rinsing though..
Have gone all meat.. Perhaps a little too far as they are heavy eating indeed!
The jerk ones made using a great jerk paste..
It’s smelling superb! A splash of white wine to create the bang ! No liquid in a sausage means no bang in the banger .. Really think I needed some other binder yet none to hand..
The second type will be apple sauce bangers. Simple.. Just a jar of Bramley apple sauce.. A splash of balsamic just takes some of the sweetness out..
Sausage making is one of those things that if you get into it it is pretty darn satisfying.. And you get to play all you like!
Run through the sausage machine.. No pics as hands pretty messy.. 👐
And twisted up into the lovely links..
Hung off the kitchen cupboards .. The best place to do it if you are a home maker! ( Mrs Fitz gets a little frazzy about this!).. Best done when you are alone.. Ahem..
They cooked up a treat ! Without the extra binder they were seriously heavy duty.. Best given away for favours..
So all of them made it into the homes of the pub regulars..
No worries .. The taste? Apple sauce ones ok, needed more spice and a binder. The jerk? Hot hot hot!! Would be perfect for a boozy bbq..
Roll on summer!
