makes 5#.,this is my go to recipe for Italian, has a touch of heat but the flavors blend so well,don't omit the red wine,thats what makes it authentic. Burgundy or a Merlo works for me! enjoy Italy at Home!
2After grinding, add all the seasonings & wine. I like to pour the wine into the spices, mix well & pour all over the meat, mix very well untill all meat has developed that orange color! May want to use hands, pull of wedding ring(s). make sure hands clean!
please, I stress keep cool!
3Either stuff into hog casings 33-35mm.. or freeze in 1/2# chubs. I form mine into small squares,wrap w/plastic wrap, then vacuum pack, most do not have this oppertunity so butcher paper is next alt. Enjoy the awesome smell as you are working!
