Fresh Sausage

Here's a way quick way to make delicious sausage, something I'd craved and didn't want to buy factory made.  It tastes best with ground pork or beef, but it can be made with turkey or chicken, too.  I've been frying it in the pan as a crumble, breaking it apart with a spatula.   Sausage patties would work well, too.  This recipe is by Sally Knitter on, .

Batch of seasoning mix (for several batches):

¼ c each of sea salt, sage, thyme, and nutmeg
1 T cayenne pepper
Fresh ground pepper

1 batch of sausage:

1 lb ground pork, beef, chicken, or turkey
2 t of seasoning mix shown above
Butter and/or olive oil for chicken or turkey

1. Stir seasoning mix together in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, mix 2 t of seasoning mix with meat (and maple syrup).
3. Fry in a pan until browned. Add oil and/or butter as needed to keep from sticking to pan for turkey and chicken.

Freeze any you won't be using today or tomorrow.  Other spices to experiment with if you like: paprika, ginger, coriander, and celery seed
