- 10 lbs. pork butt
- 3 Tbsp. canning salt
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 2-3 Tbsp chopped garlic, (bottled works fine)
- 2 Tbsp dried marjoram
- 2-3 Tbsp course ground black pepper
- 2 2 lb packages saurkraut rinsed once and pressed dry
- 1 pint ice water (important to be ice water)
Ingredients for 10 pounds. Chill pork butt, grinder, and stuffer. Grind chilled pork butt through a 1/4" or 3/8" plate. Mix all ingredients thouroughly, maintaining approx 34-38 degrees to prevent sme aring. Smearing occurs when the fat in the pork gets too warm and turns mushy. Makes for sloppy looking sausage. Stuff into hog casings, twist into 1/4 lb links, and return to cooler (refriger ator) maintaining approx 34 degrees overnight...hang on sticks if possible (to d ry casings), hanging not absolutely necessary, but overnight cooling is. Cook fresh Krautwurst by simmering links in a pan of beer or by grilling. Freeze up to 6 months.
