Back when we were still going out to buy groceries, which seems like a lifetime ago, I wanted to buy ground pork to make breakfast sausage. I knew we were getting low. Ground pork was $3.99 per pound. I wasn’t paying that so I decided to wait til ground pork was on sale but then I saw pork loins on sale for $2.59 and it was buy one/get one so I bought four of those along with a package of “pork trimmings”.
Today was the day to get it done.
I rendered the fat from the “pork trimmings” and that left me with a plate full of cracklings.
Nothing like warm, homemade cracklings!
After grinding the two pork loins, I decided two was enough for today and stuck the other two in the freezer. I’ll do those on a rainy day when Vince can help. That’s a big job!
I put 7 pounds of sausage in the freezer and kept two pounds in the fridge. I’ll give one pound to a friend and we’ll enjoy the other pound over the next week.
Between eating cracklings and cooking up little bits of the sausage to check for seasonings, I am not hungry I’m betting Vince will be so I’m going to go from making sausage to cooking dinner. A woman’s work is never done!
