Yesterday I made this sausage for my upcoming visit from my grandkids who must have sausage for breakfast.

Iowa Farmers Sausage

3 pounds pork butt
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons ground sage
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup water


The recipe called for 2 1/4 pound pork and 3/4 pound pork back fat, I wanted a leaner sausage so I went with all pork which had plenty of fat.
wanting a link with a little chew I ground the pork once thru a 1/4 inch plate.
The bit of sausage that was left in the stuffer was made into patties and cooked last night. I was very happy with the results.

I see you are from Oregon. Makes me wonder why it is called 'Iowa' sausage. Is it perhaps Amish in origin? Or German? Any idea where it comes from?
Best,

Hey - good to see you again! I've been spending a lot of time in your old stomping grounds this past spring, and will be there again this summer, including for the Chokecherry Festival in Lewistown.Tongue

I like the profile of that sausage, and would be interested in trying it. I'll try to get it made sometime this summer, but my goodness, I've had way too many irons in the fire, lately.... Ouch
