  1. Remove tendons, sinews, hard connective tissue from offal meats, then cook the meats in water (below boiling point) until soft. Drain and cool.

  3. Grind meats through 6 mm (1/4") plate and mix with all spices. Hold for 24 hours in refrigerator.
  4. Mix the sausage mix with cooked onions and stuff without delay into 40 mm pig casings forming links ~ 15 cm (6") long.
  5. Apply cold smoke at 15-18º C (53-64º F) for 7-10 days. Smoking need not to be continuous.
  6. Dry at 15-12º C (59-53º F), 75-80% humidity for 45 days.
