Old post, I know, but it’s a recipe, so it lives on. :)

Anybody know/remember how spicy the Original recipe is. Is it “spicy” as opposed to “sweet” like Italian sausage? Or is it actually hot. The amount of red pepper doesn’t seem to me like it would be so hot.

Planning to make two batches of this today and want to make sure one of them is hot. Thinking I’ll at least add paprika and maybe some additional red pepper to one of them. (And a teeny bit of anise for more depth.)

Thanks.

Well, patience not being one of my virtues, I didn’t wait for a response. So I did exactly what I said. I made one batch exactly by the notes above. Then made another batch with 30% more pepper flakes and a teaspoon of paprika and a pinch of anise.

Oh, yeah. I did use red wine as the liquid instead of water.

Now trying to decide whether to pack as snack sticks or 2.5” salamis. Leaning toward the milder in the SS casing and the hotter as 19mm sticks.

Good flavor. I should have added fat. My meat was a little lean - probably 90/10. Just using up some frozen stuff that needed to go. Next time will shoot for 70/30 or so.
