Hot Italian Today

Postby William O Young » Tue Dec 10, 2019 6:18 pm

Playing around with one of my latest hobbies again today .
Made a eight pound batch of hot Italian sausage and they taste awesome. The patties are from cleaning out the bottom of the stuffer and the tube. .

How many times have you done it? What machine did you buy? The sausage looks great. I'm especially fond of the ropes

This is a new hobby for me. First I bought the grinder and stuffer attachment for my old Kitchen Aid mixer.The grinding part far exceeded my expectations but the stuffing part of it was the pits and only stuffed my first ever batch of Bratwurst with it a couple weeks ago. Then I went on line and did a LOT of research on stufferes and bought the one in the above pictures. 4.8 out of 5 reviews is almost as good as it gets. The hot Italian sausage shown above was my second only ever experience with making sausage .That stuffer made it so much easier. The picture shows that I used a C clamp on it but after using it , I realised that was not at all necessary . I had put it on "just in case" I might have had to stop and go out in my shop and get the clamp part way through . I will not need to clamp it next time for that particular type of sausage. The very few in reviews that had to clamp theirs might have been making an entirely different texture and/or size of sausage than I did..
Here is a link to the stuffer I bought .

Hello
What do you do with those sausages that you don't cook right away? go to freeze?

There are only two of us here and seeing as those sausages are quite large , one and a half each is plenty for one meal along with veggies. . So I vacuum sealed them in groups of three and then put them all into one large bag for the freezer. Before vacuum sealing them I put them open on trays in the freezer to make then solid enough for vacuum sealing . .If you don't do that and if your sealer has as much vacuum as mine has it will flatten and distort them and make them stick together .

I must be one of the few that does not care for the taste of venison at all. I am not a hunter but there are lots of hunters in my area that have given me cuts of venison over the years which in turn I gave to someone else . Then I started asking people to please not give me any because after several methods of cooking it , I could not develop a taste for it .
Now maybe if I had been into sausage making back then I could have covered up the taste of it with spices etc.

Backstrap and venison pepperoni love both of them but for some reason, the pepperoni sticks give me tremendous gas. So the wife doesn’t appreciate the morning Dutch ovens.
