Duck Sausage?

Postby Gen. Lee » Wed Jul 13, 2011 1:34 pm

Got a frozen goose and quite a few ducks left over from last season and would like to try making sausage.

Anyone have a recipe that they'd share? Any tips, advice, or cautions?

Thanks fellas...

Last year I just mixed my ducks 1:1 with Jimmy Dean Sage sausage, added a couple dollops of bacon grease, some red chili pepper flakes and a little pepper, its been pretty good. I went 1:1 because I had some surf scoters in there. I also threw in a little old venison I had laying around. Just ran the ducks through the kitchen aide grinder, mixed in the Jimmy Dean by hand and vaccum sealed it. Good luck, there are 100 ways to skin this cat!

I saw the title and I had to post this. My store manager at work used to ask me if I had ever had duck sausage. I said no. he said well duck on down and get you some of this sausage. So whenever I hear duck sausage it makes me laugh. Thanks for playing guys!!

As of recent the most common thing I do with my ducks is make peperoni sticks, or some sort of snacking stick. Then smoke them up they are great. I have used a pre made cure, but then add chili flakes, pepper, sage, and whatever depending on the batch. Then throw them in the smoker. I love them, everyone who has them want more.

I've tried everything and I just can't convince myself that they taste good. I like goose the best, but even that doesn't thrill me.

I'm sure if I were way upstate or out in the boons, the ducks would be eating better and would taste better. Here they all seem to taste the same, from Brant to blacks to mallards. Teal can be more tender, but still pretty much taste the same too. I am lucky to have a laundromat locally staffed by people who love them and are very grateful to take my extras. I clean them and will lightly season them in freezer bags and donate what I am not going to eat.

Last month I cleaned out my freezer and ground up some divers and made them into brats. Chunked the meat first and put in marinade for 48 hours before grinding it. Mixed it about 2:1 with seasoned pork sausage and then added ginger, nutmeg, and crushed red pepper before stuffing into the casings.

The guys at work were highly skeptical but they couldn't resist when I grilled them in the parking lot and put them in a crockpot of kraut. Next time I make a batch I'll look for pork sausage that isn't ground so fine and try not to stuff the casing so full. It seemed a bit too dense, but very edible in everybody's opinion.
