Did you know that “Basic Sausage” is a Health Food! Awesome, right? Let me tell you how I make it.
Home Made Basic Sausage for Healthy Eating
My daddy Told me if I want good sausage–make my own. I don’t need flavorings and seasonings. “Jerry, just add some salt, pepper and a little sage.)
Sage will help prevent Diabetes. This spice can calm intestinal spasms and treat gas problems. It has antimicrobial benefits, and is also a brain food.
Pork is a health food
Although red meat has had a lot of bad press over the last 50-years, pork has many health benefits. It is loaded with nutrients that we need and haven’t been getting in our diets. Pork contains Iron, Magnesium, Omega 3s, and Protein therefore this meat is a body builder’s delight. I sleep well when I eat unprocessed pork for supper.
Cooking Pork for Healthy Eating
I bought three pounds of good, basic pork sausage and fried it for snacks. Big problem: I added too much of my beloved SEA SALT, and too much plain old SAGE. I decided to save the week’s food supply; I added three flavorful yellow onions, a pound of green peppers from my freezer, and quart of tomato sauce (tomato, basil and garlic) from Sam’s.
Making Meals for the Troops
I placed the whole mess into my favorite stainless steel, three-ply-bottom cooking pot and simmered for an hour. This diluted the salt and the sage. Made a wonderfully flavorful pot of “Stew.”
Packaging and Freezing for Future Meals
I partial out the “King’s Feast”, into freezer bags, three meals per bag. Now I can keep this in the freezer for at least a month or two. When I thaw this food, I can dine for a week on each package.
