Home-Made Sausages


Part of the Swedish Christmas celebrations is that many people turn to traditional cooking. Yesterday my dad’s wife & mine made sausages. They were really nice, way better than their limp and grey pre-cooking appearance suggested. But they were hardly traditional, containing mouflon and elk in addition to the pork (“whatever’s in the freezer”) and being seasoned liberally with garlic.

  1. Yummy.

    Me and my family have made a lot of bread (see http://arkeologivast.blogspot.com/2009/12/for-nagon-vecka-sedan-klarade-vi-av-det.html , in swedish), smoked some pieces of elk and lamb. I am at the moment salt curing fresh herring fillets which I intend to pickle any day now. If I have the time I intend to make som lamb sausage, which I in that case will cold smoke. Maybe I´ll make som meatballs from roe deer, which I happen to have in the freezer.

    Hopefully well shot an elk calf any day now. In that case I intend to make meatballs from the heart, as I did last year.

    The best thing with christmas is preparing the food…


  2. All of this talk is making me so hungry. I wish we could get some elk down here in FL but, well, they don’t live here. Best I could do is get some deer venison from a few hours away but it wouldn’t be the same!
