Homemade Sausages

I'd been wanting to try a sausage for ages, and I'd recently borrowed a mates sausage making machine.I found myself down in town on a Friday afternoon and my wife was going out that evening so I was on baby sitting duty. I wandering into the local butchers and they sold me a short length of natural casings. Not having planned the evening I wasn't really sure what else I needed - so I bought some pork belly...




It was then on with some serious grinding action



And some white pepper and mace (I was making it up at this point)



Ooh Eer



Not three bad...



I read somewhere that they needed to hang to dry a bit. Good use for the wine glass holder



Decided to bake them as I didn't know if they'd stand a grill or fry



Well - you can't complain. Especially when served with a Cotswold Old Ledgebar !

Next time, I'll follow a recipe - maybe a bit more juicy if I can help it




Strange Meat Balls

It's been such a long time since I actually cooked this that it took ages to work out what this was...Finally got it - bread soaked in milk !



Any tomato sauce starting like this has to be good doesn't it?



Pork and beef






See - told ya..



Fantastic.....
