Instructions

  4. Grind all meat and fat with 1/8” (3 mm) plate. Add chopped onion and all ingredients during this step.
  5. Mix ground liver with ground meat adding as much meat stock as the sausage mass will absorb OR using food processor emulsify everything together adding some meat stock until a thick paste is obtained.
  6. Stuff loosely into hog bungs, hog middles or large diameter hog casings.
  7. Cook in water at 75-80° C (167-176° F) until the sausage reaches 68-70° C (154-158° F) internal temperature. The length of time to boil will depend upon the thickness of the sausage.
