Pork Sausage - Chorizo

Pork Sausage - Chorizo

1lb. Package

The Cut - 

Farmer Bryan says that this is one of his favorite sausage blends.  It is a staple at the fire hall breakfast table.  Our Chorizo is a Mexican Blend - and given that the head farmer grew up surfing there - you can see why its on the menu. Oh! and since our pigs have the freedom and opportunity to use their muscles in the woods the meat develops a deep, incredible taste.

The Preparation - 

The easiest way to cook loose sausage it to crumble it up into a hot pan and cook on high until golden brown. The pairing possibilities are endless. This sausage is perfect for taco night or a spicy breakfast burrito.  Brya says to try it as a scramble with potatoes, eggs, and cheese.

The Location - 

We grab our sausage from a number of different places on the hog.  The first off is "trim" - which is a term used for the trimmings on more select cuts like chops and bacon.  After that we grab some fat from the hogs back - and then add in shoulder, picnic, ham, cheek, and shank!
