We started making sausages back in the 70's. Started in early October and ended just before Thanksgiving. We always had large Sausage making parties. Everyone shared in the cost and work.

Everyone brought a Pot Luck item to eat when we took a break.

These are some of my collection of sausages we made.

How to Make Homemade Sausage 5 different kinds

Step-by-Step

  1. First gather family and friends together. This is a two day event.
  2. All the sausages are the same in instructions.
  3. Depending if you are making all the different sausages. have everyone come in the Evening after having an early dinner or plan on having company for dinner (do a pot luck). Or have everyone come the next morning after breakfast or serve pastries and coffee for breakfast.

    You can set up several stations with the different sausages to be made. Also one to feed the sausage maker and the other to tie or knot them off.

    Always make a taste test before stuffing, you may want to add more seasonings. To taste test have a skillet and cook a couple of small patties to taste.
  4. Put the meat and fat for each recipe in separate bowls and mix together. Add your spices. Mix by hand. Refrigerate overnight or twelve hours.
  5. The next day stuff the castings.

    Wrap twice in freezer paper and label each.
  6. Never throw the bones from the pork butt away. Boil them in water, Use this stock for replacing the plain water in the recipes. It will give the sausages a rich flavor.
