Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    2 lbs ground country style pork rib
    3/4 tbsp salt
    1 tbsp fennel seed
    1 1/2 tbsp paprika
    1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
    1 tbsp sugar
    1 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    3 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Directions

Mix all the seasonings and the vinegar together in a mixing bowl and set aside. Grind the pork ribs into a finely ground pork. Add to the seasonings and mix well, making sure the seasonings are evenly blended with the meat.

Divide into 1/2 pound increments and put into freezer bags. Each bag makes 3, 2 oz patties for a total of 12 patties. This is good right away, but it is even better 24 hrs later.

I use this blend in my sausage lasagne (1 bag), sausage pizza (1 bag), sausage spaghetti sauce (1 bag) and sausage patties with peppers, onions & mushrooms (1 bag).
