Making your own sausage sounds intimidating, but with the right tools, it’s a cinch. Our version is made with venison, spices and dry aged bacon.

This recipe is made with Jones Dry Aged Bacon.

4 pounds ground venison meat
1 cup ice water

1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic power
10 Feet hog casings, soaked in tepid water
DIRECTIONS
Cut bacon into 1/8-inch pieces or run through small plate on grinder. Mix bacon, venison, water, and spices together in large bowl. Mix until it becomes sticky in appearance, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.

These are amazing. Modified a little for what we had on hand and couldn't be happier. Changes: ground the venison (1.8kg), bacon (1kg) and spices all together, then added 1/3 cup red wine and 2/3 cup ice water. So delicious!!
