I know that I've read many recipes, watched videos, read web pages about sausage making but when a friend invited me to make some with him and I watched him go through a couple of batches before I went for it, THAT made all the difference. It took the intimidating right out of it.
Glad to see you're taking the class and am looking forward to your report!
