Minnesota Potato Sausage

This is from the book "Bruce Aidells' Complete Sausage Book"

2 Pounds Boiling Potatos 2 teaspoons fresh marjoram or
1/3 pound pork skin 1 tsp. dry
1 1/2 pounds pork butt 2 tsp. caraway seeds
1 pound beef chuck 1 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 pound pork fat 1 tsp. ground allspice
2 medium onions Water, as needed
1 1/2 TBS Kosher salt Medium hog casings
2 tsp. dry mustard

Peel potatos and cover with water with a little lemon juice added.

Cover Pork skin with water and bring to a boil. Cover pot and decrease heat to simmer. Cook 30 - 40 minutes, until skin is soft. Drain and set aside to cool.

Grind the meats, fat, raw potatos, onion and pork skin through a 1/4" plate. Add all the other spices nd mix well with your hands. Add water if needed.

Stuff into hog casings and tie into 5" to 6" links.

I varied the recipe a little. I didn't use pork skin of beef chuck. This was a spur of the moment decision to make sausage. I also didn't have time to prep hog casings, so I used collegen casings that I had on hand. Next time around, I'll probablycut the caraway seed down to 1 teaspoon instead of 2.

I hope this isn't negative!

Being born & raised in the land of 10,000 lakes and taxes, your recipe is pretty true to form. I don't remember any caraway and I think the Allspice content was higher. A guy could get adicked to da stuff, ya think?
