Got a new 11 lb sausage stuffer from Cabela's before Christmas after reading all the great comments about it here and the fact it was on sale and i had enough Cabela buck to cover the cost. Finally got time to make some sausage and try it out.Sorry I only have a picture of the finished product. My 7 and 6 year old helped me through the whole process. Here is the recipe I used. Italian Sausage 1 1/2 Cups and dry red wine, chilled 3/4 teaspoon sea salt 3 tablespoons and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon dried oregano 2 tablespoons and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 2 tablespoons and 1/4 teaspoon paprika 1 tablespoon and 1-3/4 teaspoons fennel seed 1-1/2 teaspoons anise seed 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes 1-1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes 1-1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon onion powder 1/2 teaspoon coriander seed, coarsely cracked 1/2 teaspoon ground mace 10 pounds ground pork shoulder, Butt what ever is cheap. I mixed in all the ingredients and then added the chilled wine. I whisked it all together then kneaded it into the ground meat about 1/4 of it at a time. Only issue I had was one casing split when I made the links because I over stuffed it, I will blame the kids, I think one of then tore the casing when she was putting on the spout. :) The test meat had great flavor. Here is the finished product, also had a zip lock sandwich size bag stuffed with some meat. What a great start for the first weekend of the new year Robert Here is the new toy, ooops told the wife it was a needed tool.
