Andouille Sausage

Tuesday, April 13, 2010


1−1/2 Yards large sausage casing, approximately (about 2−3 inches wide)
4 Pound Lean fresh pork
2 Pound Pork fat
3 1/3 Tablespoon Finely minced garlic
2 Tablespoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
1/8 Teaspoon Cayenne
1/8 Teaspoon Chili powder
1/8 Teaspoon Mace
1/8 Teaspoon Allspice
1/2 Teaspoon Dried thyme
1 Tablespoon Paprika
1/4 Teaspoon Ground bay leaf
1/4 Teaspoon Sage
5 Teaspoon Colgin's liquid hickory smoke

  1. Soak the casing about an hour in cold water to soften it and to loosen the salt in which it is packed.
  2. Cut into 3 yard lengths, then place the narrow end of the sausage stuffer in one end of the casing.
  3. Place the wide end of the stuffer up against the sink faucet and run cold water through the inside
  4. of the casing to remove any salt. (Roll up the casing you do not intend to use; put about 2 inches of coarse
  5. salt in a large jar, place the rolled up casing on it, then fill the rest of the jar with salt. Close tightly and refrigerate for later use.)
  6. Cut the meat and fat into chunks about 1/2 inch across and pass once through the coarse blade of the meat grinder.
  7. Combine the pork with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon.
  8. Cut the casings into 26 inch lengths and stuff as follows: Tie a knot in each pieceof casing about 2 inches from one end.
  9. Fit the open end over the tip of the sausage stuffer and slide it to about 1 inch from the wide end.
  10. Push the rest of the casing onto the stuffer until the top touches the knot. (The casing will look like accordian folds on the stuffer.)
  11. Fit the stuffer onto the meat grinder as directed on the instructions that come with the machine, or hold the wide end of the stuffer against or over the opeoning by hand.
  12. Fill the hopper with stuffing. Turn the machine on if it is electric and feed the stuffing gradually into the hopper; for a manual machine, push the stuffing through with a wooden pestle.

Almond Joy Bars

Saturday, April 10, 2010

Ingredients (26 servings)
4 c (8 1/2−oz) shredded coconut
1/4 c Light corn syrup
1 pk (11 1/2−oz) milk chocolate pieces
1/4 c Vegetable shortening
26 Whole natural almonds (1−oz)

Line two large cookie sheets with waxed paper. Set large wire cooling rack
on paper; set aside.
Place coconut in large bowl; set aside.
Place corn syrup in a 1−cup glass measure. Microwave on high (100%) 1 minute
or until syrup boils. Immediately pour over coconut. Work warm syrup into
coconut using the back of a wooden spoon until coconut is thoroughly coated.
This takes a little time, and yes, there is enough syrup.
Using 1 level measuring tablespoon of coconut, shape into a ball by
squeezing coconut firmly in palm of one hand, then rolling between both
palms. (HINT: Measure out all of the coconut then roll into balls.) Place 2
inches apart on wire racks. Let dry 10 minutes. Reroll coconut balls so
there are no loose ends of coconut sticking up.
Place milk chocolate and shortening in a 4−cup glass measure or 1 1/2 quart
microwave−safe bowl. Microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture can
be stirred smooth and is glossy; stirring once or twice.
Working quickly, spoon 1 level measuring tablespoon of the chocolate
over each coconut ball, making sure chocolate coats and letting excess
chocolate drip down onto waxed paper. While chocolate coating is still soft,
lightly press whole almond on top of each. Let stand to set or place
in refrigerator. Store in a single layer in airtight container.
Keeps best if refrigerated. Makes 26.

1 regular hot dog roll
3 Tablespoons A&W Coney Island Sauce (see recipe below)
1 Tablespoon chopped white onion
1/2 Tablespoon Kraft shredded mild cheddar cheese (optional)

1 Tablespoon dried, minced onion
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (heaping)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Making the Chili Dog Sauce:

pieces. Salt and pepper lightly while cooking. Do not drain the fat.
2. Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer, uncovered, 30−45 minutes until it
thickens. Stir occasionally.
3. Allow to cool, cover, and refrigerate until "Dog−Time". You'll be
microwaving what you need later.

Cooking your A&W Chili Dog

2. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and add the desired number of
frankfurters to the water. Cover and let sit about 10 minutes.

(Only microwave what you need, save the rest) Then microwave each hot dog
roll 10 seconds....just enough to warm.

3 Musketeers Bars


3 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 egg whites
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 bags milk chocolate chips (12−ounce bags)

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar,
corn syrup, water, and salt. Heat, stirring, to boiling, then continue
to cook using a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.
Beat the egg whites until they are stiff and form peaks. Don't use a
plastic bowl for this. When the sugar solution comes to 270 degrees F,
or the soft−crack stage, remove from the heat and pour the mixture in
thin streams into the egg whites, blending completely with a mixer set
on low speed. Continue to mix until the candy begins to harden to the
consistency of dough. This may take as long as 20 minutes. At this point
add the semisweet chocolate chips. Remember that the candy must
already be at the consistency of dough when you add the chocolate;
the nougat will thicken no more after the chocolate is added.
When the chocolate is thoroughly blended and the nougat has thickened,
Press it into a greased 9x9−inch pan. Refrigerate until firm, about 30
minutes. With a sharp knife, cut the candy in half down the middle of
the pan. Then cut across into 7 segments to create a total of 14 bars.
Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave for 2 minutes on half
power, stirring halfway through the heating time. Melt completely, but
be careful not to overheat. Resting a bar on a fork dip each bar into
the chocolate to coat completely and place on wax paper.
Cool until firm at room temperature, 1 to 2 hours. Makes 14 candy bars.
