Homemade Italian Sausage Mom's Recipe

 Homemade Sausage baked in the oven with roasted potatoes (see recipe at the end)

Upstate NY Sausage and Peppers

Sausage frying for Traditional Sunday Sauce

( Recipe for Sausage):This recipe uses 25 to 26 pounds of pork shoulder, which creates about 24 pounds of sausage, have the market grind this for you or if you prefer you can use ground turkey in place of the pork shoulder. This recipe can cut in half also.

Hog Casings (Prepared As Instructed Below)
3/4 Cup of Salt
1/2 Cup Sweet Paprika
1/2 Cup Black Pepper
1/4 Cup Fennel Seed
1/2 Cup White Wine ( I use Chablis)
1/2 Cup Red Pepper Flakes this will make a medium hot sausage

Flavor suggestions:
Make herb flavored by adding minced garlic, parsley, oregano and basil, usually a 1/4 cup of each to taste.
Prepare the hog casings the day before by soaking in water with a little orange juice and salt. Before using, rinse well and cut into pieces 18"- 2' long. Keep the casings in warm water to keep them soft and flexible. You will need a funnel tube and stuff by hand or buy attachment for your industrial mixer sausage attachment.)
Mix all the ingredients together, usually we mix by hand, until well combined with seasonings. Put casing on the funnel or machine and stuff. We usually freeze most the links and you can use this making many other Italian recipes)
