    I have been trying to find out what kind of sausage I used to get years ago, made by a local guy up north who I lost touch with.

    Here's all I know about it:

    It has whole peppercorns in it.
    It's made from raw (cured by freezing) pork.
    It's dried so about the outside 1/2 inch or so of the sausage is darker and firmer than the inside which is pinker and moist, but both the dried and moist parts were edible (and delicious.)
    It was about three inches wide.
    It was very finely ground.
    It wasn't smoked.
    I don't remember it having much in the way of spices. Salt of course and some garlic and maybe a little sugar or something to sweeten it a little, but not much else if I recall correctly--the flavor of the meat really came through.

    Sounds like some kind of summer salami.

    Do you remember the casing on the outside being covered with a white mold, the good kind. that cured it. kind of salty tasting but not too much.
