Yield:
6 servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 3/4 pound veal, trimmed, cubed
  • 3/4 pound jowl fat, cubed
  • 11 ounces ice
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon mace
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest (blanched, chopped superfine)
  • 2 tablespoons Non-fat dry milk powder
  • Hog casings for stuffing
Directions
  • Combine veal with salt and sugar. Grind meat and jowl fat through the fine plate of heavy duty grinder.

  • Keep meat and jowl fat separate. Chill well. Place ground meat in food processor, add ice. Sprinkle spice mixture over ice. Process mixture till very cold, 30 degrees on thermometer. Stop machine, scrape down sides. Continue processing till temperature rises to 40 degrees (the longer it takes, the finer the sausage.) Mixture should resemble cake batter. Add jowl fat and process till mixture reaches 45 degrees. (emulsion occurs now) Add non-fat milk powder and process till mixture reaches 58 degrees.

  • To stuff casings: Fill a commercial sausage stuffer evenly with mixture, making sure there are no air-pockets. Stuff hog casings, not too tight, tie off with fine kitchen string.

  • Poach sausages in a shallow pan of simmering water (water should be 165 degrees), un till internal temperature of meat is 155 degrees. (Don't boil, casings can split) Remove sausages to ice bath when cooked. When internal temp. reaches 60 degrees remove from water: Cook, fry or grill and serve.
