Follow these tips when making this sausage.

  1. Clean and Sanitize all of your equipment.
  2. Buy fresh pork from your butcher (trichinella free)
  3. Keep your meat and grinder parts super cold (below 35F) during the grinding process
  4. Grind on a 10mm plate then again on a 3 or 4 mm plate (rechill between grinds)
  5. Rehydrate your starter culture (in non-chlorinated water) for 30 minutes prior to use.
  6. Using a food processor, chop the ground meat and ice keeping the temperature of the meat below 45f
  7. Once the meat turns into a smooth paste add the starter culture and rum, and continue chopping for 20-30 seconds
  8. Finally add the seasonings and chop another 15 seconds (just to incorporate)
  9. Stuff the farce into beef middles and ferment.
  10. Let the salami ferment for 12-14 hours (these parameters are for Flavor of Italy starter culture)
  11. Hang the salami to cold smoke for 8 hours

A raw tea time sausage
Prep Time30 minutes
Cook Time30 minutes
How much do you want to make? 1000 grams



  • rinse and soak your natural beef rounds for at least 1-3 hours
  • Cut the meat/fat into small strips. Chill before grinding.
  • Once chilled grind your meat/fat twice. Once through a 10mm plate then through a 4 or 3 mm plate. Rechill
  • Rehydrate the starter culture in some distilled water for 30 minutes prior to use.
  • In your food processor (with sharp blades) add the ground meat and chop for 30 seconds. Next add the crushed ice and chop for another 30 seconds. The temperature of your meat should stay below 45f (7c).
  • Next add the rehydrated starter culture and rum. Chop another 30 seconds. The farce should look like a smooth meat paste at this time.
  • Finally add all of the salt, cure and spices and chop for 15 seconds more.
  • Stuff the farce into the beef rounds and tie off.
  • Ferment for 12-14 hours at 75f – 85f (24c – 29c) with a 90% humidity then cold smoke for 8 hours, When cold smoking the temperature needs to be between 75f and 90f (24c – 32c)
  • After you cold smoke the teewurst check the ph. Your target is between 4.9 and 5.1. Once you hit that target you are finished.
  • Refrigerate and enjoy…

  1. Reminds me of a French Canadian Creton in the presentation, though that is a more of meat spread with bread crumbs which has all the delicious savoury flavours of a traditional Québécois tourtiere meat pie, in spreadable heavenly goodness.

    1 lb ground pork
    2 onions, chopped
    2 clove garlic, minced
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp cloves
    1 c dry bread crumbs

    1- Combine pork, onion, and garlic in pan and simmer over medium heat 1 hour.
    2- Add cinnamon and cloves and cook 30 minutes more.
    3- Add bread crumbs and cook 15 more minutes.
    4- Drain in colander.
    5- Pack tightly in small containers and refrigerate. Serve cold as a spread for crackers.
