Yes sir! I should also add, I left the sausage to bloom in the fridge overnight, but I had some meat remaining that I couldn't stuff so I cooked that up with some onions, made a beef gravy, some mash, my god man it was delicious! My family was all raving about the amazing taste of the sausage!

I made my first batch today and was fairly successfull I think.

Using my Kenwood with the mincer filler attachment I followed the recipe and as this was my first batch I used collagen casings. The casings were 30mm ones, they would not go over the larger filling nozzle so I used the small on (???).

Whilst th result is satisfactory I felt i had to put quite a bit of pressure on the plunger to get the casing to fill and without the pressure the casing would not fill. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Jonnie - welcome to the forum. It can be quite difficult to fill sausage using the mincer attachment rather than a dedicated stuffer - however, having said that it is still possible and practical if you are only making small batches for your own consumption.
It probably would have been a bit easier using a hog casing with the wider nozzle. To experiment, try asking your local butcher if he can sell you a few meters of casings to see if you notice the difference in filling them. Also, there is a plate - i think its referred to as a 'kidney' plate which you use instead of the miccer plate when stuffing. It allows more meat through at a time, lowering the pressure needed to fill.

Yotmon.

larger casings and tube will make a difference.If you dont want to go to a dedicated stuffer this is probably the way to go.

With my increasing knowledge of Excel I have made some vary minor alterations to the Cumberland calculator that I made, nothing of any significance unless you use it for very large quantities.

The original link points at this so either link can be used.

The guidelines state that the Cumberland sausage should

    1: Be of a wider diameter than average.
    2: Have a high meat content (of at least 80%).
    3: The meat used must be pork.
    4: Be rough-cut, giving a coarse texture.
    5: must be encased in natural pig intestines.
    6: Be more highly seasoned that other sausages.
    7: must not contain any skin, gristle, rind, offal or any form of MRM.

Hi there - if you go to Corromant's post above dated 5th Jan. and click on his link, it will open up the recipe in excel. Then add 1000g to no 4. (weight of lean meat + fat in grammes), then click off it and it should complete the calculation for you.

All the best, Yotmon.
