a few weeks ago Joe did a fantastic post with the Franks he made from start to finish. i asked for the recipe BUT he did one better. took his own time and $$$$$$ and sent me a package of his custom frankfurter spices to me up here in norther Canada.
the spices arrived early last week and my 1000 watt food processor showed up soon after so today i started the process of making 10 pounds of Franks.... (had to remortgage the house for the casings)
i did the grind with 10 lbs of pork, emulsified in the food processor and then added the spices as per Joe. also added some emulsified fresh garlic as per Joe.
will be stuffing into some 22/24 sheep casings tomorrow and do these babies as the instructions ... you guessed it ...AS PER JOE !!!!
