As seen in our last post we made some homemade sausages again. It's so much fun because if you do it all on your owne there is no limit what to put inside. Your butcher normally has some great sausages but its mostly standard.
Because it's time for apricots we thought if it is not possible to use it for some sausages ... pair it with some bacon? Let us tell you it is so delicious. We just love the combination of sweet and hearty! Just check out how we did it ...
approx. 5 m casing (caliber 28/30)
600 g pork belly (w/o rind), cubed
900 g pork neck, cubed
150 g smoked fat bacon, cubed
200 g bacon, cubed
1 bunch majoran, chopped
3 crushed garlic cloves
400 g dried apricots, diced
1 tsp cumin, finely crushed
1 tsp mountain pepper, finely crushed
2 tsp salt
We put the sausages into the freezer immediately because we couldn't eat so much at once.
What you should keep in mind if you want to defrost them - put them into the fridge and let them unfreeze over night.
It tastes so much better! It's the same with every frozen meat.
If you think it's time to make some homemade sausages you should check out were you can buy the right casing.
Normally you get it at your local butcher or you can order it online.
Let us know how it worked out and what's your very own sausage creation...
