Homemade Sausages and Spice Mixes.
Welcome to this week’s cookery column those of you who know me well know that I make most or nearly everything from scratch if possible…https://blondieaka.com/2018/10/01/hot-dogs-those-two-words-should-strike-fear-into-your-heart/
On my Mondays column on my own blog I investigated Hot Dog Sausages this week and I was shocked so instead of what I had planned, I brought this post forward… I always make my own sausages or buy them from a friend here who makes her own. She was married to a German gentleman so makes really lovely German varieties also many of the markets here make their own sausages which means the natural casings are freely available…
A quick tip on how to spot a natural casing is if the sausages on display are not all a uniform shape but all slightly different and may be wider at one end from the other.
Firstly I will give you two recipes for sausage spices which are easy to make as most people have the spices in their store cupboards and it helps with the rotation of your spices as they do lose their flavour if they sit in your cupboard for an extended period…lol…Now wasn’t that a polite way to put it???
These mixes are lovely if you are buying your meat already minced… I will also give you a recipe for making your own sausage meat from scratch.
