Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard 05/03/12

Haven't had much to post lately and very little time.  Have been doing well with my personal challenge on the cost of meals but am getting in a rut so not much to share in the way of new recipes and menus.

Was able to dig some horseradish however and get that put up.

Also froze 3/4 of a pound coarse ground to be finished later.

Made a big batch of breakfast sausage.
Meat cut up and seasoned ready to grind.  This is 6 pounds of from a pork butt.  80/20 mix.

First Coarse grind.  This was ground one more time then packaged for the freezer.

Breakfast Pork sausage
6 pounds of cubed pork butt including fat
3 T Kosher Salt
2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
4 T sage

Mix cubed pork with spices and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Course grind and refrigerate another 2 hours.
Grind one more time and package.

Stop by, The Gardener of Eden , and see how others are stocking their cupboards or what the are using from their cupboards.
