Homemade Italian Sausage

Nothing beats fresh. 😏

  • 2 pounds trimmed boneless pork shoulder, chilled

  • 1 Tablespoon freshly cracked fennel seeds

  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 cup red wine or water

  • 4 to 5 feet hog casing, soaked

  • Cut pork into pieces small enough to fit in the throat of your grinder.

  • Using the coarse grinder plate, grind pork into a large bowl or stand mixer bowl.

  • Add fennel seeds, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder to the ground pork.

  • Using your hands or the stand mixer paddle attachment, mix until seasonings are evenly distributed.

  • Add water and mix until white strands appear in the mixture and a handful of the mixture holds together.

  • Stuff sausage mixture into prepared casing. Twist into 6 links, each about 6 inches in length.
