Anyway, I have some good recipes that I've used over the years when I was raising six children and our family always seemed to be in "a recession." I'm going to list one of them each day. You may want to leave your recipes or suggestion under "comments" just as Christina did this morning.
I also want to thank Pat's Place for mentioning my Getting Prepared lists twice in her blog.
Below is a recipe that make lots of homemade sausage with very little work. Just mix and roll up like "Jimmy Dean" does theirs and freeze.
Homemade Pork Sausage
9 lbs. pork, finely ground
3/4 tsp. ground red pepper
3 Tbsp. salt
1/2 Tbsp. pepper
1 tsp. dried sage
Have your butcher grind the pork through his grinder on "fine blade."
Sprinkle seasonings over meat and mix well.
Divide into equal portions and roll in wax paper like the "Jimmy Dean" people roll theirs or form into patties and place between waxed paper. Store formed sausage in airtight containers and freeze.
Note: If you decide to roll the sausage, you can slice in rounds before frying. Partially thaw.
