Garlic Butifarra

Postby vagreys » Sun Sep 13, 2015 5:12 pm

I made a variation on my fresh Butifarra recipe, Butifarra Crua, adding 5 cloves of finely minced garlic per pound. People really seem to like it, especially grilled over charcoal with casing gone smoky and crisp. My own impression is that it makes a good base that, with the addition of a few other seasonings, can be taken in many directions from a basic garlic sausage.

Also, if you are adding water to your sausage mixture, taking the time to put the garlic in the water, bring it just to a simmmer, and immediately take it off the heat to cool, then actually chill before adding the water and garlic mixture to the sausage, yields a milder, rounder flavor.

I've now tried it adding some marjoram and sage for a bratwurst-like sausage, some Polish hunter seasoning blend for a nice, fresh kielbasa character, a little French four-spice, and I've also added some rusk and Cumberland seasoning for a tasty coil on the grill.

If you haven't done so, I'd recommend that everyone make the Butifarra Crua recipe (in vagreys' link) at least once to understand the effect of salt and pepper in sausage. I like it for breakfast. :D
