HillCountryKid wrote:Good job, very helpful. Does anyone have a video on someone tying horse shoe shape sausages? My grandpa used to tie them so fast, would have just one continuous string. Then he would go through and cut the string and would have several horse shoe links. I guess it is skill, because I can not do it. David S how do you tie the ends together?
Thanks


HillCountryKid,

I keep it simple and do it one horseshoe at a time. I tie a knot in one end of the casing and leave about two inches "dangling". I stuff the sausage until it curls around then tie another knot in the casing with another couple of inches dangling. Tie the two dangling ends together.

It's not elegant but it works and is easy.

Funny "kielbasa" it's of course means "sausage" in Poland.

David has a blog and is active on Facebook as well although I doubt if he has the sausage tying skill you seek.
I have seen it done and demonstrated and still cannot do it myself. I can tell you that one has to have the sausage stuffed perfectly to successfully do the quick twist/tie else they burst.

Here is a demo.:

My good friend is a retired butcher so I will see him when I make my own sausages. I had some pork lemon and parsley sausages in the weekend, they were really good.

Have you ever wondered that ?someone? at ?sometime? way back had to have the Original Thought of filling an intestine with chopped up meat or whatever the first filling was :?: That is one person that I would love to sit and listen to as long as he/she cared to talk. :salut:

You know that I had the same thought back when I was making beer.
Beer was always cloudy and I discovered an additive that would cause all the minute particles to adhere to one another and settle out of the brew.
Then I found out that additive was from the intestine of a specific ocean fish that begged to ask what else he had tried before he learned that something lining the intestine of a specific ocean going fish worked the best?
Wanted to sit down with him and enumerate those things... :dont:
