Well thanks to some awesome relatives who gave me cash for Christmas combined with some change I had saved up I became the proud owner of a new electric grinder
Ain't she spiffy?
Well I couldn't let this new toy just sit there so I decided to make some sausages. I figured I might as well just go for it so I decided to make Boudin, Chorizo & Andouille. Did I mention that I am a one man operation? It ended up being a larger task than I anticipated but I learned from the experience & hopefully maybe someone else can as well...
I started with the Boudin. Here is the pork cooking.
& the liver.
Scallions & fresh garlic chopped & ready to go...
Casing soaking in a warm solution of fresh dihydrogen monoxide
Forgot to take a pic but ran the pork, liver & yellow onions through the grinder then mixed in the scallions & garlic.
After the liquid/spice mixture was added & mixed. Ready for stuffing now...
The Weston stuffer my parents got me for Christmas
Done with this batch.
Nice little supply...
Closer view of the Boudin.
I have to run down to my shop for a bit - have someone coming to pick up a shelf & cutting board. I will post the rest of the process when I get back to the house.
Next up Chorizo - stay tuned!
