Making your own seasoning

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by bones1948, Aug 24, 2013.

  1. Is it worth the effort to make your own seasoning.  I would like to make seasoning for my venison summer sausage.  My wife and I like the taste of cracked pepper and garlic.  where does one start?  When trying do you mix some up and test it with your finger and if it seem like what you want add it to some meat?  Where can I get the basics for making my own seasoning?

    Look up Len Poli sausage recipes. IMHO it is part of the fun of sausage making. I made Len Poli's summer sausage last year and realized I like more garlic. I will probably have to make it 3-4 times but will end up with summer sausage exactly how I like it. Keep notes. Diggindog has a couple of excel spread sheets that make replicating your recipes in different size batches very convenient.
