I like to golf. She Who Must Be Obeyed says I golf too much. Sigh. When I golf, I find myself getting peckish around the 11th hole and I like to have something in my bag. Snack Sticks are the perfect solution. Continue reading Spicy Snack Sticks
I have made summer sausage from kits and from recipes with all kind of exotic ingredients like encapsulated ascorbic acid, Fermento, high temperature cheese, etc. If you know the history of summer sausage, it was made by local people from local ingredients and just included meat and seasonings and then was smoked. With all my experimenting, I found I liked the old simple recipe and it is now my go to. Welcome to OFG Summer Sausage. Continue reading OFG Summer Sausage

Hi Mountain Kit
I am still using the moose meat my friend gave me. I was seeing her today so I spent the last couple of days making this sausage so I could share it with her.
Thanks to My Friend!
A very generous friend gave me a bag of frozen moose. If you have never had moose meat, you do not realize how generous this is. It is not gamy like venison and has a wonderful texture. It is my intention to process some of the meat and give half the product to her. I started with Peppered Jerky.
