For approx.15 lbs. total with the water added
4 lbs. lean pork
4 lbs. lean beef
4 lbs. potatoes
1 1/2 qts. water
1 bottle minced onion (2 1/2 oz.)
3 T salt
1 T white pepper
1 T allspice
( T = Tablespoon)
Grind pork and beef together 2 times.
Grind pork, beef and cut up potatoes one time together.
Mix in remaining ingredients and water until thoroughly combined.
Stuff in medium casings.
The amount of water you need will depend on the water content of your potatoes.
Sausage can be frozen cooked or stored in a refrigerated salt-water brine until used.
When storing in brine, use a container big enough to hold the sausage and keep it submerged in the brine using 3T of salt with enough water to cover. The salt/water concentration is about the same as the recipe. With too strong of a brine, salt will transfer to the sausage via osmosis.
It will hold this way for a week.
