Its turning into a friggin' sausage factory over here. I can't stop making sausage. Now I have made Rosemary Roasted Garlic that got nice and dry and chewy, one little taste leads to many more and before you know it one is gone and the other is half left. I have a Paprika, made from whole paprika peppers that a friend mailed to me from Hungary this Fall, that I think is too salty when I tested it in a pan but it wont be ready for a few more weeks so I dont now for sure; and today I made a strong Garlic and Black Peppercorns that when I taste tested the batch in a skillet it is going to be good. (Dont expand the fridge picture if you are food squeamish) These sausages in natural pig casings are so precious to me I cant even begin to tell you, plus I found a better job for my little fridge besides filling it up with beer all the time. I dont know if anyone remembers those Ice Cube commercials when they go to the fridge and it is full of Forty's...well not to sound like a raging alcoholic but I have filled this guy to the brim that same way, I take out the little mini crisper and fill this puppy up. Sad huh?
