photo by GiddyUpGo
- Ready In:
- 1hr 20mins
- 1 tablespoon white pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons sage
- 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon thyme
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- 5 tablespoons salt
- 1 onion, peeled and chopped
- 3 1⁄2 lbs cabbage, cored
- 10 lbs pork butt, de-boned and cubed
- To prepare casings: Let casings soak in cool water about five minutes to remove salt on outer surface (no longer, or they will become too tender to stuff) and flush salt from the inside by placing one end on faucet nozzle and turn on cold tap water (if you see holes or water leaking, cut and discard).
- Remove casing from faucet and gently squeeze out water; cover rinsed casings and refrigerate until ready to use.
- Boil the cabbage until tender.
- Drain and cool.
- Grind cooked cabbage with the onion and meat.
- Add remaining ingredients
- Fill the casings and make links by twisting the sausage where you wish the links to be.
- Four inches is a good size for a regular serving, smaller links may be made for appetizer servings.
- Place the sausage in large saucepan or dutch oven in a single layer with a little water; cover and heat over high heat to a low simmer.
- Reduce heat to maintain low simmer (sausages may burst if cooked at too high a heat) until the sausage is heated through and meat is thoroughly cooked, approximately 15 minutes.
- Drain and let rest for about 15 minutes before slicing; serve while warm.
I made this recipe for the Belgium entry of my blog (Travel by Stove). First of all thanks so much for posting because I had no idea what I was going to do without a Belgian sausage recipe to go with my stoemp. This was literally the only one I could find.<br/><br/>These sausages were really tasty and surprisingly easy to make (though they were a little time consuming). I cut my recipe down to 1/5th (I used just two pounds of pork) and it was just enough to feed my family of six. If you're intimidated by the idea of making sausage, don't be. All you need is the casings, a grinder and a sausage attachment. Thanks again!
