Wish me luck!
« on: October 21, 2008, 05:29:37 pm »
I'm on vacation this week, first time in a year.  I have been a very dutiful husband, worked all last weekend getting the house ready for new flooring in the living room and dining room.  Flooring is finished.  I ask my loving wife "what are we doing with the rest of the week?"  Her answer, "I don't know.  What would you like to do?"(don't insert an answer here ;)  I say "I want to make andouille sausage" and she jumped all over it!!  First time making sausage of any type but I am stoked.

Happy dance all around.  This will truly be a very unique experience and one that I really look forward to.

Very cool KyNola! Let us know how it turns out, with pictures of course!

I don't know if I could go a year without some time off.

Pictures please???  I have been wanting to do some Andouille suasage and use a little of it for some Jambalaya.  Let us know how it turns out.

I just ordered 1/2 Hog yesterday (125 lbs) so I guess it would be a good time to make some Andouille, share the recipe to please.

I'm not sure, But that's not in the index of Rytek's book. I have read various things about this sausage and have been interested. Some say it's mostly used in cooking other things, and some say it's great by itself.
Do you have a plan for a recipe and how will you use the sausage? I am up to a new sausage, but undecided.

Any time Momma says sure lets go for it and sausage making is involved it is a good time!! Enjoy yourselves.

Be careful about calling yourself and EXPERT! An ex is a has-been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure!

The recipe I am thinking about is Len Poli's recipe.  He has an incredible website for sausage.  The website address is www.home.pacbell.net/poli/  If it doesn't work, advance google search Sonoma Mountain Sausages.  That will get you there.     

There is another good one in "Charcuterie" using the hot smoked recipe although I would most likely season that one a little hotter.  As for what I use andouille for.....gumbo, jambalaya, red beans and rice, big ole' pot of white beans on the stove with some of Nepas's tasso recipe.  Almost forgot crawfish pies. ;)

Fall and winter in my house is all of the above weather. :)

I'd love to hear how it comes out Ky...made it many times and haven't been 100 percent happy with it any of the time. Hope it comes out great and I can steal the recipe!!  ;D
