I made this for the bride and I and also for our neighbors from Germany. They brought over a BIG box of chocolate that they picked up in Germany last week.

This sausage is BUTT UGLY when cooked, but it tastes amazing!

I LOVE butt-ugly sausage!
It's too cold to smoke and we don't need any more Italian, Stiks or Kielbasa, so this may be just what the Dr. ordered! I need to stuff something.


Gonna look for recipes....

Question, What sized meat mixer is that and how much meat is in it?

Ask and ye shall receive.

Swedish potato sausage

4 pounds ground pork butt
4 pounds peeled potatoes
3 pounds ground chuck
1 pound white onion

72 grams kosher salt
30 grams white pepper ground fine
10 grams all spice ground fine
300 ml water

Boil potatoes until almost soft, then rinse in cold water until cool.
Mix the spices into the water very well
Grind all meats through course plate and then mix in the spiced water
Grind the potatoes and onions together and then mix into the meat
Mix until very sticky
Stuff into hog casings

To cook, low simmer for around 30 minutes or grill until the IT is 160 degrees. Serve with lingonberry preserves if you can find them. Cranberry sauce works if you have to.

Thanks! Sounds like a perfect Sunday thing (I have to do Christmas house decorations Saturday since I had to work this weekend).

20 pounder, 1/2 full. It works better with 15 pounds or more, but I was lazy today. :biggrin:

I usually do the potatoes raw, but the bride doesn't like the color of the sausage when the spuds turn colors. So this batch I boiled them until they were JUST getting soft. They stayed white until stuffing was done, she's happy.

For chits and giggles, I may add cure to the next batch and see how that plays out. Main reason would be for color, it sure looks bad after the poach.

Mose, they may have lingonberry sauce and/or preserves in your part of the world.

Best butt ugly sausage I've seen! You should've smoked it in a ugly drum smoker! Then it would've been double butt ugly!

Points!

Alas, no one in my part of the world has ever heard of it. Found some on line but it's going to be almost 2 weeks delivery. It must be coming all the way from Sweden...

Cranberry sauce works in a pinch, but lingonberry is the best for this sausage!

I can only get it in 2 locations here in the Dallas area.  One has it SOMETIMES and the other stocks it all of the time.  She also sells online.  The Wooden Spoon in Plano, TX

Wow; I'm having lunch with my 89 year old Mom and this is a favorite of hers from the 1940's. My mission is clear!
