Sausage-making at home
Love great sausage? Then this week's story, "The case for homemade sausage," might just leave you rolling up your sleeves, ready to try your hand at making your own.
Of course, for the first-timer, the act of sausage making can seem a bit confusing -- if not downright daunting. So we've included a step-by-step photo gallery illustrating the process from start to finish.
It may take a little time to get the feel for the whole process, but sausage-making can be a fun -- and tasty -- activity. Bruce Aidells and Denis Kelly in their book "Bruce Aidells' Complete Sausage Book" recommend inviting friends over to help out: "Sausage-making has always been a communal activity, and making sausages together, frying up samples, and tasting, can double the fun and halve the work."
Have fun, and happy sausage-making!
