Learn how to make sausages

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By GORD STE­WART

Tran­si­tion Mata­mata’s Septem­ber event is an evening work­shop on sausage mak­ing at Mata­mata Col­lege. Sausage- mak­ing equip­ment will be avail­able and skins pro­vided. This ses­sion fol­lows along on ear­lier popular work­shops on pre­serv­ing foods for win­ter, plant prop­a­ga­tion and cheese mak­ing.

For the up­com­ing ses­sion, par­tic­i­pants need to bring along about 2kg of very cold pre­pared meat, plus chilli, garlic, herbs, spices, onions etc and fruits (ap­ples and pineap­ples for ex­am­ple) which they may wish to add. This is a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to use up game meats and pos­si­bly com­bine sev­eral meats to­gether.

In­for­ma­tion on sausage­mak­ing equip­ment and prac­tices will be pro­vided so you can follow up at home. It will be a great evening to learn new skills and meet some new peo­ple.

Cost for the two- hour ses­sion is $10. You can ring the Col­lege of­fice on 881 9018 to re­serve a spot.
