How to Make summer sausage at home anytime of the year
Put pre-mix into bowl. Add whole mustard seed, coriander, fresh ground pepper, and liquid smoke for flavor. You can also add half a teaspoon of hot pepper mix to make it spicy. For meat, use 1/3 ground chuck and 2/3 hamburger; some fat is necessary for a good sausage. Next, add the sodium nitrates, spices and 1 ounce per pound of meat of water into the chuck and hamburger and mix it with your hands. Continue mixing until the meat gets "tacky". Then, the meat needs to be ground and put into the casing. Cook at about 170 degrees for nine hours. Tear off the casings and enjoy.
