  • I just finished my second batch of summer sausage, it is outstanding. Everyone raves about it! also made a batch of BR brats – same result. great products!!

  • To the lady from Germany;
    Try putting in the oven @ 165° f until the center/core temperature reaches the recommended 148° f. Then water bathe for 20 minutes, etc… It is likely that somehow your batch did not reach the intended temperature. Don’t give up. It’s well worth the 2nd try.
    Good Luck 👍 & God’s Blessing on you and your next attempt !!! ✝️✝️✝️
