Fresh, uncooked, from the butcher case. Good buy, 20 or so fat links for $13ish. But do they taste good?

Fitting that I received this joke in my e-mail today...

POLISH SAUSAGE

A customer asked a clerk, "In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?"

The clerk looks at him and says, "Are you Polish?"

The guy (clearly offended) says, "Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something..
If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian? Or if I had
asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for
a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or if I had asked for a Taco,
would you ask if I was Mexican?' If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask
if I was Irish?"

The clerk says, "Well, no, I probably wouldn't!"

With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, "Well then, why did you ask
me if I'm Polish because I asked for Polish sausage?"

The clerk replied, "Because you're in Home Depot."

No. Because, as my grandparents used to say, "You never know what they put into it!"

Honestly, I do buy sausage bought in the stores but I would like to have some knowledge about what is in it.

sometimes ignorance is bliss




we had a slaughterhouse down the street when I was a kid. River conveniently located nearby. Only went in it when they closed it. Local hoofs had local slaughter houses years ago ...
Thier butcher shop also had all the body parts of a steer in glass jars. Some were for sale, like pickled eye balls and testicals and brains (when you're a kid you remember certain parts ).


All those parts you don't see on the grocer's shelf and the dog food companies don't want. :-)

I'm just saying made in-house will usually mean you can make a good guess what goes into the casing based on what else they are selling in the meat case. that is all. I know about sausage making. >

In answer to your basic question, they taste just fine. I like the sweet version. I remove the casing before cooking.

The boy and I have been making our own sausages lately, for the past couple of months. We use the grinder & sausage stuffer attachments on our Kitchen Aid mixer. It's to the point now that we're making sausage about every three weeks at his best friend's apartment. We call it Sausage Sunday. Last week Friday we taught our downstairs neighbours how to make lamb sausage with their Kitchen Aid. Our deep freezer is full of tasty sausages right now. Here are some of the flavours we've made recently and in the past:

+ Lamb w/rosemary, garlic & pine nuts
+ Kimchi sausage
+ Rosemary, Parmesan cheese & garlic
+ Italian
+ Hot Italian
+ Chicken w/rosemary
+ Paprika & cumin (next time we might go all the way & make chorizo)
+ Bison breakfast sausage
+ Bison Italian sausage

The bison flavours were the first ones we made where the boy's mum showed me how to do it. It's easy to make and we buy a 7lb pork shoulder on sale for 99¢/lb. From there, it yields about 5.5 lbs of cut up meat that goes through the grinder process. For sausage casings, his parents normally give us ones from Syracuse Sausage Company whenever they're down from upstate NY. Other times, we get them from a local good quality butcher.

Italian sausage around here goes for $2.99/lb in the supermarket for Premio brand. For about $1.25/lb (not counting labour) we can make our own fresh sausage & freeze it. Great for making sausage & peppers or throwing into homemade tomato sauce. Try it!
