Sausage Making

This week also found me learning a new skill. Sausage Making!. My good friend Stuart from Southborough Butchers is hoping to go to Nepal later on this year to help build a house with the charity Habitat for Humanity. He needs to raise a great deal of money so he decided to offer sausage making lessons. I was first in the queue. What a giggle. There is definitely an art to it. I now have a great deal of respect for all of those people who appeared on the Generation Game and made complete fools of themselves. It's a lot harder than it looks.

I managed to get the knack of getting the sausage meat into the skin but trying to twist the things so that they looked anything resembling sausages was a bit of a disaster. However this did not appear to affect the taste and sausages are now a staple part of our diet.


  1. Wow! I am impressed! I have learned quite a few things since I have moved out to the country, but sausage making will probably not be one of them.

    My hubby found your blog by random chance. I love it. We live on a dairy here in the Mid-western USA and are doing our part to live simply. My name is Rebecca, you can find me at

    Now that gardening season is here I mostly will be blogging on that, and my 2 year old, Ellen.

    It's nice to meet you. Happy blogging!

  2. I love that wall to wall sausage pic! Good post but excuse me, where's the recipe for oat cookies by the way!!!! Good to see you last night, now you are an expert blogger! Love Salx :)
