Apple Fennel Sausage

Day 3 of apple week is my favorite so far! I have been wanting to make sausages for ages! I make loose sausage all the time, but after having some of the best sausage of my life from Marlow and Daughters in Brooklyn a few weeks back, I decided it was time for me to finally case some sausages. So what that I don’t have a meat grinder or sausage stuffer? This was originally going to be a duck sausage, but I had trouble procuring duck here in western MA. In fact, I couldn’t even find sausage casing! After hitting a few stores and having flashbacks of searching for ingredients in Bermuda, I found a place. The problem was they only sold it in 2.5 lb increments for 35 bucks! Couple stores later and I was able to buy an ounce of the stuff for 50 cents.
