    Okay, picked a recipe. Going to do a fresh (non-smoked) Italian sausage. Spices will include toasted fennel and coriander seeds, garlic, fresh basil and oregano, paprika (have not decided Spanish or Hungarian yet), and few other things. Will cube and season today, plan to grind and stuff tomorrow.

    Give us some good pics of the corning process please (no homo).

    I want to do more pickles but the wine cellar is just too packed to fit in a food bin. [​IMG]

    I believe I may be able to offer some assistance with this matter.

    I used to make a lot of Italian sausages...unless you really love it, take it easy on the fennel. It can really overpower the other flavours.

    Calls for two tablespoons in a 5# batch. What do you think? I value your hands on advice but Ruhlman is usually so bang on with his recipes.

    I would trust Ruhlman over myself. But I would say to make them level tablespoons and not heaping ones. Better to err on the safe side and adjust up for the next batch.
