BTW, I tasted the sausage today. I believe its the best I have ever made and possibly the best I have ever tasted.
Spice was perfect, a very slight suggestion of heat when eatting which builds for five mins after eatting. Not uncomfortable at all, but warm. The Amephos gives it a little twang which I have not noticed before........ I LIKE it! I also tried with this sausage with a bit of cure. The manufacturer of the this sausage said he had just incorporated it in his also. I can't say I noticed the cure taste or texture at all. Amazing.
That is Good stuff. I am so happy you guys goated me into trying making sausage. Believe me you better be a GREAT cajun cook to beat me now with my own sausage & Andouille.
I am now getting folks wanting to purchase my "tender" andouille, and some guy came by the house the other day and wanted to BUY boudin! I didn't know him nor did I have any. This is starting to be more and more fun. <whispers> Would be more fun if I didn't have to clean up and put up all the toys after ever use.
Guys, if I hadn't said so today, I really appreciate what you continiously teach. Oh and "Guys" means everyone , its not gender specific.
