This wonderful “old school” recipe came to us by way of my friend Sonny “Santino” over at the You Tube channel That’s Aroma! Arrusti e Mangia Mangia. I have to admit I had a little trouble writing this one out, so I created 2 versions of this recipe. The first version is exactly how Sonny explained it in his video. Remember the pepper sauce that Sonny used was a 980 grams jar. I tried to find that exact brand but apparently, it’s only sold at Costco in Canada. If you follow Sonny’s recipe, you’ll need to take that into consideration. Below Sonny’s recipe, you’ll find my version. My version is a 1 kilo batch, but you can adjust the amount that you want to make in the “Servings Box”. 2.2 pounds – 1000 grams, 5 pounds = 2270 grams, and 10 pounds = 4540 grams. You can literally plug in any number and the recipe will automatically make the adjustments. for you. I’ve also precisely calculated the spices that Sonny used in his recipe. So have fun with this sausage and if you make it let me know what you think!! Enjoy.
