    Getting set to roll out some fresh chicken sausages. Started with 6.41 pounds of skin on, bone on thighs. Did the usual trimming. Removed all the skin, this will be used for schmaltz making. Which probably needs to happen soon as the storage bag is now full. Saved the bones for stock. Ran the meat and what fat was on the meat through the Kitchenaid grinder., course grind. Ya know I have to say if you're only doing small branches like I'm doing for these one off sausages the Kitchenaid grinder is ample. If your doing mega loads, ten pounds or more then get a dedicated grinder.

    Everything is chilling right now for a bit. I ended up with 3 pounds of ground chicken. If I'd added the skin I'd probably gain a good pound I guess or close to it.

    I bought these casings prior to the big Customer Service Nightmare. I hope they work okay. I'm going to be working some natural casing into the mix as I start making some other sausages. The chicken ones though will always use the collagen since my wife is adverse to using the others...

    Might have too!

    I am going for the off-grid food processor to mix the seasonings! Bought this for the kids to use and surprisingly it work great!

    So as I go here's why we got.

    [​IMG]

    This is going into the blender.

    4 cloves garlic
    Thumb of ginger
    One nice pack of thai basil
    Two Serrano chiles dried from our garden

    To this I'll add two tablespoons lemon grass paste ( I would've used the sticks but they looked horrible!)

    Tablespoon or twist of fish sauce

    Tablespoon of lime juice

    1/4 cup or so of coconut milk.

    2-3 tablespoon curry paste

    Maybe corriander. Wish I'd picked up some fresh cilantro.

    Keep in mind this is just the plan. May adjust as I get into it. I will be doing a fry test too.

    Sure does Adam. The blades are mega sharp gotta be careful when cleaning!

    So here's the spice slurry.

    Added basil
    Two tablespoons fish sauce
    Two tablespoons curry paste
    Two tablespoons lemon grass paste
    1/2 cup coconut water ( may need to add another gallon to make the LEMon work...)
