Bologna (sausage-making cookbook by jerry pre

Yield: 10 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Beef Chuck
2 tablespoons Salt
4 \N Garlic Cloves, pressed
½ teaspoon Ginger, ground
½ teaspoon Nutmeg, ground
2 pounds Pork Butt
1 tablespoon White Pepper
½ teaspoon Coriander, ground
½ teaspoon Mustard, ground
2 cups Water

Grind beef with half of the salt in coarse grinding plate, and allow to cure in refrigerator for about 48 hours. Use the other half of the salt when putting pork through coarse grinding plate, and cure this overnight.

Regrind cured beef using fine plate, then add pork and grind mixture again.

Add spices and water and stir heartily until the whole mixture has become sticky. It may take yo 30-40 minutes to reach this consistency. Stuff the sausage into beef casing or muslin bags and hang in a cool place overnight.

Smoke at about 115 degrees F for about 2 hours or until a rich mahogony brown. Put the hot, freshly smoked sausage immediately into water heated to about 170F, and cook it until it squeaks when the pressure of the thumb and finger on the casing is suddenly released. The usual cooking time for sausage stuffed in beef intestine is 15-30 minutes --for larger casing, 60-90 minutes. Plunge the cooked sausage into cold water and chill it. Hang in a cool place. (From another of the author's notes, it appears that the inside temperature of the bologna should be about 150F.) **Recipe from the collection of Clarence Fontish** From: Danial Mannen Date: 03/11/96 At 16:12
