I never have fresh ground pork made into sausage. A good sausage is easy to make and far superior in flavor. Here is a new sausage recipe. I have our fresh pork just ground and packaged, then frozen. I take it out two to four days ahead of seasoning. When you add seasonings be sure to use the fresh sausage in a day.
You Will Need:
•3 pounds of ground pork
•1 small onion, minced very finely
•1 Tablespoon sea salt
•2 teaspoons dry, ground sage
•1 teaspoon dry, ground mustard
•3/4 t. black pepper
•1/4 cup real maple syrup
Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. I just use my hands– it’s messy but effective.
Place it in the fridge for a couple hours to help the flavors develop, or, you can use it right away.
