A wurst case scenario

I went to buy milk and dinner and came home with 6 m sausage casing and 4 kg pork. It is stormy and rainy outside so this is the perfect day to fill the fridge to be prepared if a worst case scenario would hit us. We now have sausages that will keep us alive and happy for at least 2 weeks.

If you don´t have a food processor with an additional tool for sausage production you should not try this. Since we got so much casing and meat we decided to do three different sausages.

A wurst case scenario

The Italian job

  • 1 kg minced loin of pork
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tbsp dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon truffle oil
  • 100 g breadcrumbs
  • 2 dl water
  • 2 m casing

We minced our pork ourselves. You could buy minced pork or beef. Use a mortar to grind the spices to powder. Mix all ingredients in the food processor.

Prepared the casing. They should be rinsed (the butcher will deliver ready-to-use casing) and you should apply the casing on the additional tool for sausage production on your food processor. Stuff the sausages slowly. Try to avoid bubbles of air and do not stuff them to hard. Make one long sausage and divide them into smaller sausages after you filled the casing. You do not need any string. Watch this video to learn how to bind the sausages (the video is in Swedish but by looking how he works you will understand how to bind the sausages).

Desperado

  • 1 kg minced loin of pork
  • 500 g minced smoked pork belly
  • 1 tbsp sambal oelek
  • 4 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp paprika powder
  • 1/2 a leek
  • 5 dl water
  • 1 dl potato starch
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 m sausage casing

Fry the leek and garlic in some oil for some minutes. Should be a bit brown. Mix all ingredients in a food processor and stuff the sausages as described above.

To add more smokey flavor we smoked half of the Desperados for 10 min.

The good German

  • 600 g salted pork belly
  • 600 g minced loin of pork
  • 1 tbsp caraway (Kümmel, kummin)
  • 1 tbsp marjoram
  • 6 dl water
  • 1,5 dl potato starch
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2,5 m sausage casing

Use a mortar to grind the spices to powder. Mix all ingredients in the food processor. Stuff the sausages as described above.

We got 50 sausages in total. If you haven’t invited the whole soccer team you could refrigerate the sausages.
