I bought a sausage maker from Northern Tool ( approx $100 plus shipping )
I'm going to use it to make fresh sausage and Salume, but haven't gotten around to making anything yet.
My buddy John Pants ( pence ) called and asked to borrow it for a dinner he was doing at caprialandjohnskitchen . I brought the tool over, and we proceeded to make some fennel/spice sausage (well, he made it and I drank beer and took pictures )
Not much to say: The Metal parts were frozen for a few hours, John ground the meat, seasoned it, mixed it, then extruded it into beautiful sausage.
