food: pork sausage

we finally got around to sampling our homemade sausage…
clearly, the best way to showcase it was as a sausage bake.

so i lovingly prepared it all…
chopped up golden beets, onions, fennel, carrots and a couple potatoes…
tossed it all in olive oil and baked it up.



the final product was a thing of beauty… naturally.


and we were SO EXCITED to dig into the fruits of our labour…

but when we did…

this sausage is insanely salty.
like, i couldn’t even eat it.

the spices great, the texture and flavour wonderful, but holy salt!
i don’t know if there was some sort of measuring error or what, but basically we brought home some seriously inedible meat.
so, colour me disappointed.

i’m still going to try to make something of the last 5 links… maybe if i slice them up and put them in a slow cooker sauce i can redistribute the salt.
but i’m real sad about it.

    Super sadness. I haven’t tried mine yet but now I’m not as eager.

    That sucks. I was thinking for doing that class that your did, no not so sure. A thought of what you could do with them. make them into a tomato meat sauce (I do that all the time instead of ground beef) and don’t salt the sauce and then put it on something paleo. 🙂
