This year the butcher asked about sausage flavorings ... and I opted to just receive ground pork to be able to add my own spices.
1-1/2 pounds of ground pork
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, or red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground powdered ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 teaspoons dried rubbed sage or other green herb you prefer
1 teaspoon dried chives
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried garlic powder
Mix well all spices into pork. Shape into a log on a piece of wax paper. Roll tightly. Refrigerate at least an hour or overnight.
