Wine-Infused Fig and Prosciutto Sausage
– 2 lbs pork butt (available at Wine’ing Butcher)
– 1 cup dried figs, finely chopped
– 1/2 cup prosciutto, finely chopped (available at Wine’ing Butcher)
– 1/4 cup red wine (available at Wine’ing Butcher)
– 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
– 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
– 1 tablespoon garlic powder
– 1 tablespoon sea salt
– 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
– Natural sausage casings (available at Wine’ing Butcher)
– Cooking twine (available at Wine’ing Butcher)
- Prepare the Ingredients:
Begin by trimming any excess fat from the pork butt and cutting it into small cubes. Place the cubes in a large mixing bowl and set them aside.
- Wine-Infused Figs and Prosciutto:
In a separate bowl, combine the finely chopped dried figs and prosciutto, both of which are available at Wine’ing Butcher. Pour the red wine, also available at our store, over the mixture, allowing it to soak for 15 minutes. The wine will infuse the figs and prosciutto with delightful flavors.
- Grinding the Meat:
After the wine infusion, grind the marinated figs and prosciutto mixture together with the cubed pork butt using a meat grinder. Alternatively, you can use a food processor to achieve a coarser texture.
Add the fresh thyme, minced rosemary, garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper to the ground meat mixture. Mix everything thoroughly, ensuring that the seasonings are evenly distributed throughout.
- Stuffing the Sausage:
Now comes the fun part! With the help of a sausage stuffer, fill the natural casings (available at Wine’ing Butcher) with the seasoned meat mixture. Twist the sausages into your desired size, ensuring they are secure with cooking twine.
- Cooking the Sausage:
To preserve the flavors, refrigerate the sausages for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight. When you’re ready to serve, you can grill, pan-fry, or bake the sausages until they are fully cooked and have a beautiful golden brown color.
