Re: Adding zingy brightness without acid for fresh sausages

Adding vinegar or a large amount of lemon juice will denature the proteins, break the bind and affect the texture of the sausage.

Re: How NOT to make hotdogs

I also learned the hard way when I first got my "5kg" Chinese chopper. There is no way it will handle 5kg.

Re: Kiełbasa Taty - Dad's Sausage

Wonderful story. I’m honoured to give it an attempt. You won't be disappointed Ed, keep in mind it's the process that is so much important than the spices. To add to that story......

Re: Bowl Cutter

They are not that easy to find. My Chinese cutter is not working right now and there is no one on the Island that can fix it.
