Is it me?  :)
Well, yes I'm partial to a little charcuterie and sausage/bacon making. I find myself becoming more and more snobbish about sausages and bacon the more I make. As my recipes become more refined the other seem more, well... shite.

I'm happy to advise anyone should they wish to dip their trotters into the procine delights of hams, bacon or sausages.

It *used* to be said that the only piece of pig that didn't make it to the table was the
oink. The whole charcuterie industry grew up on this philosphy: don't waste it.

Hence black pudding, haggis, sausages of all sorts etc. And even when made from
*interesting* body parts, I'll wager they were better tasting & healthier than the
cocktail of sawdust, chemicals and other fillers that passes for an average sausage
these days.

Now, which evolter can I think of who makes his own sausages..?
