Gosh and golly, thank you lovestoeat. Have not thought about making sausages in a long time. Don't know why, just haven't.
Yeah you need something to chop the meat, but it can be done in a food processor.
And one can stuff them with a plastic thing-a-ma-bob that costs next to nothing. That is bare bones.
There are gizmos that will grind and put out the sausage mix through an attachment that you just put the casings over.
It is all pretty simple.
If you are interested would Google the 'sausage maker'. Have purchased stuff from them for years and they are reliable, at least in my experience.
Where we live cannot get boudin, but can make the McCoy. Found out that we were doing it just right after a trip to New Orleans where we ate some from a stand.
Sausage making is something anyone can do.
Thanks for bringing it up.
