We promised last year to try to come up with a summer sausage that had better ingredients than the stock seasoning mix we were getting from Alaska Butcher supply.
Here is the recipe we are using and all the ingredients are available in the bulk spices bins at Fred Meyers. We sold out our first batch and are going to do another 100 pounds this Saturday at the end of the hamburger run.
This is not as strong as our old mix but it has no MSG or preservatives. This is available to folks picking up a side of beef for $5.50 a pound.
