Italian Sausage

Hot or sweet Italian Sausage

1 pound ground pork
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1-1/4 teaspoons ground paprika
2-1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon anise seed
1/8 teaspoon fennel seed
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes – delete for sweet

Place the ground pork into a large bowl. Season with salt, garlic salt, black pepper and paprika. In a blender or food processor, blend together the oil, anise seed, fennel seed and red pepper flakes. Mix everything into the ground pork until well blended. Refrigerate for 24 hours to let flavors blend. Bag and freeze in portions that suit your needs. This can be put into a casing for links or made into patties. If crumbled it works well in a meat sauce

I make 5 pounds at a time.

I buy pork roasts and grind my own pork.
