Homemade Organic Italian Sausage

I found this recipe over at All Recipes and have modified it to make it more my own by increasing the spices and making it organic.

This is what you’ll need:

  • 1 lb. organic grass-fed ground pork
  • 1 tsp. organic red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1 tsp. organic freshly-ground peppercorn blend
  • 4 sprigs organic Italian flat-leaf parsley, finely minced OR 1-1/2 tsp. organic dried parsley flakes
  • 2-3 organic garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. organic yellow onion, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced organic fresh basil leaves OR 1 tsp. organic dried basil
  • 3/4 tsp. organic ground paprika
  • 2 tsp. organic red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. organic fennel seeds
  • 1 pinch organic brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. organic dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp. organic dried thyme

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Place all ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl.
  2. Knead until well blended.
  3. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 12 hours.
  4. Warm a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Place the sausage into the skillet.
  6. Crumble into smaller pieces while cooking.
  7. When the sausage is no longer pink and is lightly brown throughout, it’s finished cooking.
  8. Store the sausage in glass Mason jars and allow to cool completely before refrigerating.
  9. Once completely refrigerated, freeze any portions that will not be used within a week.
  10. Enjoy!
