Summer Sausage

My dad was an expert maker of all kinds of sausage. He used whole seeds–mustard seed, coriander seed, peppercorns. Can I just add these things to my sausage or do I have to exchange out the ground spices?

My dad made WONDERFUL sausages of all kinds. He used whole spices–coriander, mustard seed, peppercorns–in addition to garlic salt, onion salt, etc. Can I just add the whole seeds or should I exchange out the ground spices? Also, some people in the South Coastal areas make shrimp sausage. Can that make a decent summer sausage or is it too dangerous?

I would love to make this for Christmas. I would add some chili pepper flakes for a spicy one.

I’m thinking roasted garlic would be great in a summer sausage, maybe add some rosemary too.

That sounds lovely!

I’ve made lots of sausage before but never summer sausage. I’d like to try a chorizo type, probably cold smoke it for awhile before cooking. Or maybe French garlic sausage.

sounds great! Let us know which one you tackle and how it came out!
