sweet Italian sausage

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Whipped up some fresh sweet Italian sausage using the rytek kutas recipe..... instead of regular sugar I added turbinado sugar.....

 

stuffed the other day and had 7 blowouts in a row. gave up and put back in the fridge to try the next day. Soaked the casings over night and had better luck. for some reason the fresh casings I bought usually come in a salt water brine and these were in all salt. I think the water leaked out of the package. I never had a problem with blow outs. I always can pack my sausage pretty tight.

 

 

For the really bad news.......no smoke on these sausages... grilled only.......yeah, 102.gif had to get them done fast to get the family fed due to lack of time......

Sausage was just like you get at the fair...... will be playing around with the recipe.... you know me... used a 7mm plate. will go to a 4mm plate next time and make it a little leaner next time. the recipe said 1 tbs sugar. might cut that in half next time and it seems to be missing something but it did have some really good flavor......

 

 

Thanks for looking

Nice job Joe!

 

Rytek's stuff is kinda bland and I gave up on his recipes a couple years ago. Here is a pretty decent sweet italian if you aren't happy with this version. http://thespicysausage.com/recipes/sweetitaliansausage.htm

thanks for all the compliments everyone. the sweet corn was awesome too. Hey nepas, I never had to put vinigar in the casings before. With this hank I will have to try it. When i get my casings they are in a salt water brine and they are rugged. I rarely have a blow out and I stuff really tight. These casings were a little rubbery  and didnt have that crunch.but it was still all good

Nice. I love a good italian sausage.  Did you put a little vinegar in the water with the casings? Sometimes you need to do that with the dry packed ones.
