How to make Italian sausage.

From a survey done by a consumer association in the restaurants of San Francisco, Chicago and New York it was found that Italian cuisine is a lot less caloric than what you might of thought. Low in calories include spaghetti with clams in white sauce or with cherry tomatoes, or spaghetti with meatballs, sausages also contain a low content of harmful fats.

The Recipe ...

Ingredients:

3 pounds well-marbled pork butt, 
cut into 1" inch pieces then grind
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons of paprika
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
2 teaspoon chilis (peperoncino)
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground anise
2 tablespoons freshly chopped Italian parsley leaves
3 tablespoons dry red wine
1/8 tsp of Oregano
2 tablespoons of minced garlic
1/8 tsp of thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons toasted fennel seeds

Directions:

Grind pork mixture with a medium grind 1/4" or to your preference. 
Grind all spices together in a small spice grinder.
Then mix with your pork.
Put in refridgerator overnite to give spices time to mix.
You can fry a patty up to test spices in the morning and adjust if you like. 
Stuff the meat into the casings. 
Twist to evey 6 inches.
Cook sausage in usual manner, making sure the internal temperature of the sausage links reaches at least 145 degrees F (63 Celsius).
Uncooked sausage can be stored in the refrigerator up to 3 days or freeze and use within 3 months. 
I prefer natural pork casings.
