Pardon my tangent above on the jokes but aside from all the "pig parts" identified I love a homemade pizza, homemade dough, salsa mixed with some enchilada sauce and paste, Green Chile peppers, Chorizo (out of the casing into pieces), some chopped onions, garlic, oregano, and topped with shredded Cheddar Cheese.

My 2 cents!

    Cacique brand Chorizo sausage (pork or beef). First three ingredients: Salivary Glands, Lymph Nodes, Fat (cheeks),...

    I kid you not!

    I just want everyone to know that this is NOT a hot dog. It's bulk sausage.


    Precisely why I make my own sausage whenever I can.

      Several years ago a friend gave me Bruce Aidells book. I started making my own sausage with great results. I was just looking at Bruce's recipe for Chorizo. It doesn't call for any of the top three ingredients found in the Cacique brand.

      Cosmos, I'm with you. You make it yourself, you know what you got. But there's some styles of sausage that I just can't make at home. This is where you have to trust your butcher. Just like you have to trust your fish monger. And once you've got a good one, don't ever let 'em go.

        Butcher being the operative word. Sausage I don't make is purchased from people or companies that I trust to leave out the sawdust and other intersting bits. Granted there is nothing wrong with most "specialty meats", but you kinda want to see them before you eat them.

          As a former political reporter and the son of a slaughter house owner, I must remind folks of the old line about how one should never watch legislation or sausage being made.
