Modern RootsThere is nothing like homemade sausage. You control the salt and ingredients, making it a healthier option for breakfast, soups, or stuffing! After tweaking this recipe to get the right sweet & salty, I believe this to be a winner. If you don't like any 'spice' to your sausage omit the red pepper flakes, but it is NOT hot spicy, just gives it a little extra.


5 pounds pork shoulder cut into 1-inch sections (you can buy pre-ground pork sausage plain, if so do step 1, then step 4 ... done)

1/3 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons kosher salt – or sea salt

Meg, anything home made is better than store bought. I have not been a part of making sausage. I do like sausage and your steps to making it look to be simple enough even for a kitchen challenged guy like me. I have a list of things to try this Winter when the weather prevents doing outside work. That seems to be real soon so I better start making my list and checking it twice. ***** Have a great healthy sausage day.
