Step 1

Cut the meat into one-inch cubes. Put through medium grinder.

Using your hands (wear latex or rubber gloves, if you prefer), mix the pepper, marjoram, garlic, allspice, water and salt into the meat.

Cover and chill at least two hours or overnight.

Make into patties or links using hog casing.

If links, spread on a tray and refrigerate for up to three days, turning daily to allow sausages to dry and cure.

Makes five pounds of sausage.

To cook, you can grill or brown in a skillet. Cook thoroughly, at least 20 minutes.
