Tell me how it's done

Okay Claire you peeked John's interest last night when you spoke about smoking bacon and making sausages. He wants to know where did you get the recipes and know how from? I said I'd ask and maybe if he was very lucky You might enlightened him and possible a whole bunch of other people.
Sound's like another article is required. :thumbs:

Re: Tell me how it's done

:thumbsup: No problem.  Let me find the binder out, it may be packed still ... :sad:  I'll work on the links too for buying the skins (they came from a place in BC which also has a great pdf free recipe guide we made 2 sausage recipes out of I think).  We made  a Lincolnshire sausage Lynn and it was just like back home all herby and sagey.

This book is helpful, Making sausages at home  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/158017 … 158017471X   we used some of the recipes in it too.

We watched sausage-making videos on you tube.  Hardest thing to get is the back fat...getting a home grown piggy means you ave tonnes of this. So grinding meat in a meat grinder is easy, you have to do the fat too, or the belly meat which is like half fat, half little strips of meat.  Blending spices +/- breadcrumbs is easy, we used the kitchen aid you can buy proper mixers but they are $100+, cheapest at Princess Auto hunting area that I have seen.  They are $100+ and I'd only get one if we were doing 100+ pounds a year, the big kitchen aid just did 5 pounds at a time.  You hands get really cold mixing it all by hand so you do need something.

You have to rinse and soak the skins for 45 minutes before you fill them, they are encrusted with salt so it has to be rinsed and the need to reconstitute a bit.  Filling them is just getting a feel for it.  I held the skins and stuffed while Nathan wound the sausage stuffer to make the meat go into the skin.     

The only special stuff you need to buy is the skins and the stuffer, but if you only wanted to make patties, you don't even need that. 

Here's a Bacon one we did, it was all great but this was out of this world.  The Loblaws Presidents choice streaky bacon black pepper and molasses or something is very similar (but not as good as your own)  Here is the link to the recipe, we left out the junipers, we just did bay, tons of black pepper, salt and Tate and Lyle's Black Treacle (English or course you can buy from some English stores) but molasses will do, it's the same thing really!   I think we did 5 bacons; a maple syrup, a honey, (both very mild), a brown sugar, and maybe a white sugar/cider.  Will find out the recipe.  One was the bacon ham plain salt recipe from the Self sufficient life by John Seymour.  It was very salty but :love: too.  We never smoked any as we didn`t have a smoker, I`m not that keen on really smoky bacon anyway.

http://www.breakfastandbrunch.com/recip … ?rcpid=419

I'll add to this.  I am pretty sure I know where they are but am going to Ottawa Tuesday morning and have to run around and get snow tires tomorrow, so it may be later in the week, this should get you started anyway. :thumbsup:  :eat:

Re: Tell me how it's done

Lincolnshire is just across the river where me and Lindy come from.  Where in Lincolnshire is she from? You can see it from Skeffling, Hull is to the left where Lindy lived (about 20 miles, 30km form Skeffling)  I went to high school in Withersnsea, the south part over the river Humber is Lincolnshire.  Zoom out and you`ll see Lincoln and and idea of where in England this is (NE).  I can't get the google map to show on the page but here's a link!

Will work on finding the recipes  :eat:

Re: Tell me how it's done

Rats I just drooled on the keyboard... :banginghead:

I got two yorkshire barrows the Monday before Thanksgiving. Scott told me these darned chickens were just the gateway drug to farming!

They're already growing :jumping: :eat:

Ha!  Hope you didn't electrocute yourself on the keyboard. 

:congrats: on the new additions.  You are in for a treat.  We just bought our pastured tamworth pig fresh for the butcher so didn't raise it ourselves.

I think we need pics too, piggies are quite cute.  :thumbsup:

At the rate they're growing, I think Ham will be departing late March - early April.

I'd love to hatch a plan for a road trip!  :eat:

:) PM me if you're serious, and we'll set a date. It's going to be a busy spring around here, and if we don't get it on the calendar, it won't happen. :thumbs:

Re: Tell me how it's done

Oh I would love to, I have a feeling we will eventually, not sure if it'll be this spring though.  It's going to be crazy here with chicken, farm and house plans and paying for them :oops:   It would be fun though....it's a huge temptation.  :doI?:  Anyone else up for road trip?  I'm not an adventurous driver but could co-pilot :jumping:
