Who here was looking for a Mennonite Farmers Sausage Recipe?

Looks good! I need to get back into making sausages. I made some kielbasa from a mix a couple years ago, and wasn't too happy with it. But this one looks like a winner.
He talks about adding cure; I'm assuming he means cure #1?

Yes. Cure #1 (sodium nitrIte) is used for all smoke sausages. Cure #2, which has nitrates and nitrites, needs bacteria to break down the nitrate into nitrite which is why it is used in dry curing.
