Utopenci or Drowned Man sausage

Czeck Drowned man sausage

(Translates as "Drowned ‘persons’" because of the pale coloured ‘fingers’ floating in liquid)

Sausage Ingredients:
1 small white onion finely minced
1 tbs crumbled dried marjoram
2 tbs finely chopped parsley

2 cloves garlic

Whizz all this and simmer slowly in 2 tbs butter until well sweated but not browned and add to 8oogm pork shoulder (magro) minced twice.

Stuff into pork skins and make into links slightly smaller than a normal breakfast sausage.

Pickle ingredients:
1 tbs Allspice

Sprinkle of crushed chili flakes
4 bay (laurel) leaves
8 fresh peppercorns
½ rib of celery – sliced
2 cups white vinegar (adjust depending on acidity of vinegar used and make
1 cup water (3 cups by volume
salt to taste

Simmer pickle, covered, for 5 minutes.

When ready to poach sausages bring pickle to a boil and carefully place sausages into boiling pickle, do not stir, removing from heat immediately the pickle returns to the boil. Cool then refrigerate, leaving sausages in pickle. I put them in jars, topped up with the pickle, let them cool and then put them in the fridge

Age for at least 2 days before using. Will keep for 5-6 days covered in refrigerator.
Serve cold with a bit of mustard or hoseradish.

Freezing is not recommended.
