- 4 lb lean pork
- 2 lb pork fat (from the butcher)
- 3-1/2 tsp salt
- 6 tsp sage
- 3 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1-1/2 tsp white sugar
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 2/3 cup cold water
- 1/4 cup homemade hot sauce (or to taste)
Thoroughly chill meat and fat. Using a 1/2 inch cutting blade, run the pork and pork fat separately through the meat grinder and chill again.
Combine all seasonings. Mix the seasonings into the chilled meat and then put through the grinder with a 1/8 inch cutting plate. Mix meat and fat in a bowl and add just enough water to make a soft "dough."
Freeze in bulk or make sausage patties. You may also stuff into casings and be sure to avoid air bubbles.
