Spice mixture instructions



  • I just started making my own sausages. I purchased a few spice packages from this site and there are no instructions that came with them as far as mixing, amount of fluid to add. etc. You guys make it tough on the beginner. I cooked up what was left in the tube and auger and it tasted great. I just hope I don’t have a problem with the mixture not being wet enough to stuff the casings.



  • If you go to the Walton’s website and click on Walton’s Learning Center, then click on Seasonings and scroll down below Sauces, you will find a chart for 1Lb and 5Lb batches for the different seasonings that Waltons carry. Hope this helps.

    @renaldo Thanks for that! We always appreciate people helping each other and pointing them to the right info on our website! @lateasusual Another good tip would be to watch the corresponding video in the Learning Center for the product you are making as it will tell you how much water to use per batch. Hope your sausages came out great!

    I always make patties out of the left over in the tube and the bottom of the stuffer. I am working on a video now to go over a few different things to do with that, if anyone has any suggestions other than Patties, or skinless sausages let me know!

    I believe the recommended curing time is 12 hours but can I go less than that? I was expecting my order to be here tonight and it won’t be here till tomorrow morning now.

    I was going to mix up my batch of jerky tonight but will have to do it tomorrow on my lunch break. Just wondering if tomorrow evening would be long enough to let the meat cure.

    Thanks,

    Weston

    Your recipe calls for 1. Sure Cure, 2. Sure Gel Meat Binder, and 3. Smoked Meat Stabilizer. I have all but the Sure Gel Meat Binder. Can I get by without using this? Second question- Is Excalibur’s Cure Excellerator the same as Sure Cure?

  • @andyman Great question, Carrot Fiber holds up to 26 times its weight in water, and while the 80 oz is still well inside that I have never done that before. I max out (even with Carrot Fiber) at 64 oz which is 2 qts. My only fear with doing 80 is that it might take a lot longer to cook as it will have more water content that will be trying to evaporate. Most of that water should be bound up in the carrot fiber though so it wouldn’t really be available to be cooked out. Hmmm, my recommendation, to be safe is to stick with 64 oz of water.

    Now, as to should you add more seasoning, some people will taste the difference if you did not add additional seasonings and some (most) will not. Your water and your seasoning is technically part of your meat block (anyone who is reading this who doesn’t consider this don’t worry!) so adjusting your meat block to include your water is sometimes done. If you do decide to add more spices or seasonings I would add aromatics and things like Rosemary and Basil, don’t add more salt as that is formulated specifically for the meat block.

    Hope this helps and if you do decide to go with 80 oz of water then I would be very interested in the results!

    @jonathon I enjoyed this line of questions and comments, it made me think. Here is my related question: Assume I use 25 lbs. of meat to make summer sausage and add one package, 4 oz., of Carrot Fiber and 80 oz. of water. The ratio is 20 times the weight of water to the weight of CF. In other words, I am adding 5 lbs. 4 oz. of water/CF paste to my meat dough. Should I adjust the amount of salt and spices, I add to the dough? I am concerned that the flavor will be weaker if I don’t add spices for the new total, 30 lbs. curious as to what y’all thinking.
