On my behalf I have also been busy, making some more marmalade – 2 x orange, 2 x orange & ginger, 2 x orange & Grand Marnier. This was followed by another litre of yoghurt.
Finally, I made some pork 'sausages'. I say sausages as I would normally roll them into sausage shapes as I don't use skins. This time though, I decided to make them burger shaped, which took less time. Each 'burger' is the equivalent of 2 sausages and we shall either have one each for a meal with potatoes and vegetables, or I'll change their shape and use them in a different way.
I managed to make 12 in 3 different flavours from 3lb of pork, belly and shoulder combined. The meat was minced then half was re-minced and it all mixed together. The flavours I choose were wholegrain mustard, honey and crispy bacon as seen below;
followed by rosemary, lemon thyme, basil and tomato, then sage and black pepper.
There was some left over which was formed into sausage balls, grilled and added to a tomato and vegetable base. We had half with pasta twists and the rest we will have with spaghetti and cheese.
Price wise they were not cheap, 71p per 'burger' but they are almost 100% meat as I didn't have any bread crumbs. I reckon they would have been cheaper with them as the mixture would have made more. Despite that, we know exactly what is in them and they taste lovely.
Any idea what I'll be making in the next few weeks - yep - a few lovely things for a certain time of year!
