Three hours, thirty pounds of Bratwurst. I'm sure glad I don't do this for a living. It's hard business. Jerry came over to help and between the two of us we knocked it out.
First we had to cube the pork shoulder, Then we mixed in the seasonings: Salt, white pepper, ginger, nutmeg, caraway and mustard.
Working in 10 pound batches Jerry ran it through the grinder. Then I kneaded the mixture adding a little cream and water.
I mentioned in a previous post that I got casings from a packing house. The advantage to these casing versus asking for some at the grocery is that I was able to get casings long enough to do 10 pounds in one run.
Ok I'm done making sausage. What else do we need to make? Sausage Week Continues.
Thanks for coming over, J.
