meat packin'

D.I.Y sausage packing

Recently my friend Daniel picked up a old school meat grinder for me to play with.
along with a car oil filter used as a sausage stuffer you can make some wonderful
tasting sausages. the first two i made was a filipino longanisa, the short stubby ones above and
a mexican chorizo, the longer reddish ones above. I have also made a lamb linguica that was
so amazing. recipes can be found online or from your local butchers.
i get all my meat from either star market on claremont ave. or from verbrugge on college ave.
the casing from verbrugge is smaller than the casing from star. but equally excellent for
stuffing. all the butchers are friendly and are encouraging for all your meat adventures.
