    I had 4 pound of ground pork left over from the last run of sausage that I stuck in the freezer and wanted to use it up.
    While on the fresh sausage kick, I went with my chicken tomato basil recipe but used pork instead and added some rosemary.

    Here's what I did.
    4 lbs ground pork butt (1800g))
    120 g Sun dried tomato's in oil, drained
    19 g Fresh basil
    25 g Salt
    4 g White pepper
    10 g Garlic
    70 ml Red Wine
    10 g Sun dried tomato paste
    6g Rosemary

    Stuffed into 30-32 hog casings and spun into 5"-6" links so they fit in a nice homemade bun, which is another story


    Here's the ingredients;



    close up;



    Links headed for the frig to mellow:



    I Fried up the sausage left in the stuffer and had a taste, and it's not bad, I'm hoping the rosemary mellows out some and I think it will. After that the wife ate the rest, so it must be alright.
    thanks for lookin, and if you try it let me know what you think or what changes you made....

    Looks good.

    Rosemary is one of those spices where a little bit goes a long ways.
