We had ground four pounds of various meats and were mixing in all the herbs and spices when we got The Phone Call. Our house is for sale and we had potential buyers that wanted to look at the house. Now, this doesn't sound like much of a problem until you realize how messy of a cook I am. Add a six year old daughter, a kitchen strewn with equipment, all three of our arms up to our elbows in raw meat and the problem becomes more apparent. The semi-mixed meat got throw in the fridge, the grinder got quickly disassembled, things hurriedly cleaned and put away, and then we were running out of the house just before they arrived. We stuffed the sausage later and then got to eat it.
It was our first attempt to make Bockwurst and it was great!
