Learn how to make sausages
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.
