Russian Sausage Recipe: the easy way…

Sausage, or kolbasa (not kielbasa) is a mainstay of Russian meals and life. Every Russian market will have sometimes hundreds of varieties for a person to pick from. It is literally what you must think of in conjunction with vodka, matryoshka and bears in Russia. Time to make some Russian sausage and I picked an easy to make type. There is a million and a half recipes for Russian sausage, just add your favorite spices and transplant dill for parsley and your sausage becomes your own…

Ingredients:

5 pounds of coarse ground pork
2 large chopped and diced onions
1 Tablespoons of pressed garlic or no press smash it to oblivion
1 bundle (bunch) fresh parsley chopped up stems and all
1 level tablespoons of whole dill seeds
3 leveled tablespoons of caraway seeds
1 level tablespoon of coarse ground black pepper
1 heaping tablespoon of salt
2 cups of water
pack of hog-casings

Lets make:

Combine all ingredients and mix them well in a large mixing bowl. Hand mix, mix some more, one more time and you are done for now…
Then let sit overnight, to gather the flavors…
Mix again by passing through a meat grinder with a small hole end product and as it exits the grinder, stuff into hog-casing…
Bake at 350° F. for approximately 1 hour…

Then eat hot, eat cold, eat warm, eat on bread, eat with eggs and eat with anything! Yummy…

    Yes it is! I call it summer sausage and love it on crackers with cheese slices. Sharp cheddar to be exact…

    Just that Russians are very particular about what it is called. Arguments will happen over the name…
