Sausage Recipes and Farmer Gatherings

In Uncategorized on November 8, 2009 at 6:19 pm

Boy, the farmer gathering last night at Leyden Glen Farm was great.  Many thanks to Julia, Kristin and Mark for hosting a lovely little dinner party.  The leg of lamb was wonderful, as was the Coyote Hill Farm mashed  Gilfeather Turnip and (whole) Brussels Sprout dish topped with Parmesan Cheese, the Severance Maple Farm Baked Beans, Linda’s Applesauce, and we got many compliments for our sausage and cheese meatball appetizers.  We had a wonderful time eating our harvest.

Here is a recipe that I unearthed in my search for a quick and simple sausage recipe to share at the party last night.  I did not make it for sharing last evening, but it sure sounds like one to try!

Sausage Cake

1 lb. Sweet Italian sausage
1 cup cold black coffee
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cup self rising flour
1 cup chopped nuts of choice
1 cup raisins

Add sausage and coffee and mix in a big bowl. Add granulated sugar and dark brown sugar, mix well. Beat in eggs. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves and salt, mix all ingredients well. Add flour, mix well. Add chopped nuts and raisins, mix well.   Do not grease the pan!

Pour in angel food cake pan and bake in 325 degree oven for about 1 hour or until inserted knife comes out clean.

During the holidays it is commonplace to soak a cotton dish towel in Rum and wrap it around the cake and put it in the refrigerator for about two weeks. Cake may also be decorated for any holiday.
