I'll try 1 tsp of salt next time, I just don't use a lot of salt. My pork was $2.49/lb at the grocery store which is ok for doing a test batch. I would grind my own if I do a large batch.

Sorry, I looked it up.. I got it for $219. Guess I had a bit of dyslexia.

How does compare to store bought, flavor wise? Similar but better or totally different ?

Iffin it's totally different is it Italian Sausage? American Italian sausage is a specific flavor profile. Of which I don't think I have ever tasted in Italy, but that's besides the point. Well, maybe American Italian Sausage can taste a specific way, but try Italian sausage is very specific. Now I sound like Biggy.

I don't know.. it was a recipe from an old retired guy that used to run a very popular Italian restaurant. It's probably American Italian like all the food here , it's Americanized some what.

Nothing wrong with having both sweet and hot sausage in the same bite.The flavor profiles start out sweet from wild fennel seeds and then bring you into that so loved burn that red pepper flakes give you.Best of both worlds.Add a bit of Garden Sage and or Maple syrup and BAM more flavor.Throw some Turkey into the mix for health reasons even better.Keep all proteins ice cold for grinding.Good stuff yet I say this as I can`t eat much of this anymore so I will live vicariously through your cooks.

I cooked up another batch of this, and I'm totally satisfied with the salinity level I mentioned in this recipe. It tastes perfect to me. No more salty than meatballs or sausage you get from Walmart.

I find a lot of recipes online for sausages aren't salty enough to be equivalent to most store bought. But I never have had high blood pressure, so it's not a problem for me.

If you use injected pork butt instead of all natural (such as IBP), you might need to cut back on the salt. Because the injection water evaporates, and that concentrates the salt--because there is less actual pork. (Also there might be some salt in the injection?)
