- Soak liver in cold running water for 1 hour, remove sinews, cut into slices and cover with water of 90°C (194°F). Poach for 8-10 min, stirring frequently. Then cool liver in cold water for about 5 min and leave to drain water away.
- Poach meats (except liver and brains) in a small amount of water: kidneys and lungs at 80-85°C (176-185°F), other meats (except fat) at 95°C (203°F) until soft, fat trimmings at 85°C (185°F) until medium-soft. Save meat stock.
- Grind liver and brains through 2 mm plate and emulsify. Grind other meats through 2 mm plate and then emulsify.
- Emulsify the liver until it feels spreadable. Then add salt, spices, all other meats, and lastly, fat pieces and keep on emulsifying everything together. During emulsifying, add about 10% of the stock (in relation to the weight of poached meats) that remained after poaching.
- Stuff the mixture loosely into pork bungs, beef middles, or synthetic casings.
- Immerse sausages in boiling water and poach at 176-185°F (80-85°C) for 50-90 min until internal meat temperature reaches 154-158°F (68-70°C).
- Cool sausages in cold running water for about 10 min, then hang them up and cool down to below 6°C (43°F).
- Store in refrigerator.
