Recipe by Poll_of_the_Purple_

This is a vastly cut down version of the recipe my Grandmother and Great Grandmother used. The oil of lemon is my addition. it replaces very finely grated lemon zest. I sometimes omit the casings and use this as a very mild breafast sausage.

  6. Then mix.
  7. Loosely stuff medium saussage casings and tie off in 5 inch legnths.
