This recipe is enough to make five pounds of sausage.
5 lbs pork butt (or mix of beef and pork) approx 25-30% fat 2 TBS salt 3½ TBS sugar 1 TBS marjoram 5-6 cloves of garlic, minced 1 tsp white or black ground pepper 1 tsp mustard seed 1 cup ice water
Mix all seasonings with the cut up meat (except water), grind once through the coarse plate. Add the ice water, mix by hand. Change the grinder plate to the medium blade and run the sausage mix through the grinder.
Let sit for a few hours, or over night in the fridge, for the flavors to blend before stuffing or making patties. Another half cup of water may be added for texture.
