Orange and Ginger Sausage

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
After watching what seems like endless food programs on tv where they add orange or lemon zest to a recipe I figured it was time to use some in sausage. There's not a whole lot of orange sausage recipes out there so I winged it with this, which came out pretty good, then the wife tweaked it to her liking and it's a solid hit.

If anyone is interested there is a Greek sausage, Loukaniko that uses orange that sounds good, but this one is sort of asian-ish.

Orange and Ginger Sausage

Weight in grams

Chicken thighs, skinless 1400
Salt 25
Orange zest 5
Garlic, minced 4.2
Ginger, ground 2.1
Black Pepper, 2.8
Reduce orange juice 75ml

After the test fry the better half requested ;

Ginger paste 7.5
Hot pepper 1.7
Fennel 2.5
Basil, fresh 8+/-

Zest an orange to make 2 teaspoons of zest. Add the juice of 2 oranges to a pot and reduce to about half. ( I want the orange flavor but not the extra liquid).
Grind chilled chicken with fine plate.
Add seasoning to orange juice and mix with ground chicken until you get a good bind.
These were stuffed into 24-26 sheep casing and linked into 7” hotdog's

I used maybe half of the chicken fat and I think even less would be better.
The orange was noticeable but next batch will have maybe half as much more.
Fennel was added with the basil to give it a Thai basil flavor. ( that’s what wifey said, and she has taste buds)

These were pretty colorful so I got carried away with pic's.;

3 lb rope;


If ya look real hard you can see the orange.

And lastly frying a few up for dinner;

Still working on the homemade bun gig, they're getting better but I guess I wasn't meant to be a baker

Thanks for looking. sausage.gif
