Making sausage is easy and delicious. Making it yourself comes with all the advantages of any homemade food. You know what’s going in to it (what do you think goes into industrial sausage?) and you can adjust the flavors to your taste. It’s also relatively inexpensive even with high quality ingredients. All you need to make sausage is meat, fat, spices and a knife. That’s all anyone needed for centuries. Everything else makes it more convenient but isn’t necessary.
A meat grinder will definitely make your life easier. I use an attachment that goes on the front of our Kitchenaid mixer. You can also get an inexpensive hand cranked one that does the job just fine. » » »
