To every lb. of lean pork, add
3/4 lb. of fat bacon,
1/4 oz. of salt,
1 saltspoonful of pepper,
1/4 teaspoonful of grated nutmeg,
1 teaspoonful of minced parsley.
Mode.—Remove from the pork all skin, gristle, and bone, and chop it finely with
the bacon; add the remaining ingredients, and carefully mix altogether. Pound it
well in a mortar, make it into convenient-sized cakes, flour these, and fry them
a nice brown for about 10 minutes. This is a very simple method of making
sausage-meat, and on trial will prove very good, its great recommendation being,
that it is so easily made.
