Hog Casings / sweet intestines
Curing / Preserving Procedure:
1) clean the sweet intestine by rubbing both the internal and external parts of it with salt and rinsing it in running water. Soak the sweet intestine for an hour or more, in salt solution of 3 tbsp and water just enough to cover the whole intestine. Rinse well before stuffing.
2) Mix all the ingredients thoroughly. Try frying a small amount to check on the taste. Add more seasonings as needed. Do this taste test until you get the right taste.
3) Stuff the meat mixture inside the sweet intestine. tie with a thread at both ends to make a log
The healthiest way to cook this is either to grill or bake it. Do not fry it. But if you are not health conscious and you prefer it to be fried, then feel free to do so 🙂
