Have you ever made sausage? Have you ever thought about making sausage?
It is a fun affair.
I would rather talk about sausage right now than the aftermath of the horrible loss I experienced last week. That has consisted of drama and me eating a box of truffles in preparation to open three Fedex boxes that I didn’t want to open.
So I’m going to talk about sausages instead.
These are my sausages. From left to right their names are: Venison Sausage, Cotechino Sausage, Venison Kielbasa, Chorizo, Porchetta Sausage.
I made them from the pigs I hunted and the venison at deer camp. Even the fat I used was from the very big hog on the preserve.
Then I roasted them over an open fire and sliced them so we could do a little taste test. It is all for my next book Girl Hunter, coming to a store near you in the fall.
It has been very hard to write lately. But I’m trying.
Nevertheless, there will be all five of these sausage recipes in the book. And some handy “how to’s” so that you can make sausage in your own kitchen, or properly butcher if you’re so inclined. Because that is what I’m here for. Or so I think…
Here is a prelude in case you’re feeling impatient…which I am, more often than not…
