Homemade Italian Sausage
The bigger the challenge, the juicier the reward. Namely, Chef John's homemade spicy Italian sausage--a true labor of love for those who are patient and serious about sausage. Processed through a meat grinder, these juicy links contain pork shoulder, fennel, anise, coriander, and many more spices, which you can adjust to your liking. The key, per Chef John's late uncle Billy, is drying the sausages throughout the process. Here, they are dried twice, once overnight and once for 24 hours. Grill them and serve on bread with red peppers for a meal worthy of Uncle BIlly. Get the recipe for Homemade Italian Sausage.
