You can buy a sausage making kit for about 20.00 with skins...there are lots of recipes for making sausages but game and wines/port and beer are great to replace the liquid requirement...I make chorizo sausage, port and game, red wine and venison and mixed game, with brown beer. Remember to substitute 50% of the meat mix with a good fatty belly pork...I don't use rusk I like my sausages to be meaty and like them to hang for about two days before eating...if you want to use rusk use French toasts instead crumbed up...they add texture and colour. Seasonings are salt pepper and any fresh herbs you might like to use. Bonne appetite.

Ahhh, I'd love to give this a go. If only to get some decent venison sausages - I've tried several butchers now, and a couple of supermarkets, and for some reason that escapes me they all feel the need to be heavyhanded with the seasonings. Very much a case of 'Where's the venison???' - have you a link for the kit you mention?

I'm also on the lookout for a fruit-press, my neighbour has a couple of heavy-cropping apple trees and last year much of the fruit was wasted. I have plans this year ;)

I bought mine from Lakeland it's a bit like a plumbers silicone gun with a few nozzles and I got some synthetic skins with it, but buy them at 2.00 a tube from a local butcher...one tube makes about 20 lb of sausages. You can also get them from your butchers outfitters.
