    The wife asked me if I could make some Hot Italian sausage for her. She needed a half pound for a recipe she was making.



    I decided to package some ground poke for future use.

    Fresh Parsley
    Fresh Garlic
    Ground Pepper
    Red pepper flakes
    Fennel seed
    Cold Red wine
    5 lbs of ground pork
    29-32mm hog casings


    Packed in


    Decided to make another batch of Sweet using the pre mixed TSM seasonings.

    Wrapped up to be enjoyed another day.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks Dan. I did the sweet once before and made a post about it, so I didn't go nuts with the pics.

    However, I was told on here to freeze the sausage for @1/2 hour before vac sealing so they keep their shape. And that's what I did. A really great tip!

    Here is the recipe for the Hot Sausage:

    Recipe for 5 pounds

    5-lbs pork butt

    1-cup cold red wine

    1-cup fresh chopped parsley

    5-tsp kosher salt

    1-tbsp granulated garlic(fresh minced would be better)

    1-tbsp fresh cracked black pepper(coarse)

    3-tsp cayenne

    1-tbsp whole fennel seed

    2-tsp crushed chili peppers

    4-tbsp paprika
