The great thing about making your own sausage is you control the fat and seasoning. You can make it spicy, with a couple of pinches of chili flakes. And you don't need a meat grinder, either. Just buy the pork alread ground or have your butcher grind it. This sweet and savory sausage is great with some very finely diced apple, added to it before cooking, which will make the sausage moister and sweeter. And if you like Italian sausage, add about a teaspoon of fennel seeds.Source: Unknown
