I love fresh sausage, and the act of mixing the flavors together. This was in a Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook that my sister gave me years ago. It is how my Grandmother Scarbrough cooked and every time I eat this I am taken back to her huge garden.

  2. Combine the spices and beaten egg with the ground pork and mix well until well incorporated.
  3. Let sausage mixture sit for at least 20 minutes to allow the spices to bloom, then use as desired.
  4. You can keep the sausage in the fridge for up to two days however it doesn't freeze well raw. Once cooked, it will last well in the freezer.
