Fagundes Meats – Sausage Field Trip

posted in: Sausages 0

Visited my local butcher, Fagundes Meats in Manteca, CA.  Did not get a chance today to get my hands dirty but the visit was priceless cause I got a chance to watch and pick the brains of some accomplished sausage makers.  Today they were processing Venison Snack Sticks and Linguiça sausages.  The good part is that I’m welcome to return anytime I want and get more training.  I even volunteered to work for free just to perfect the art of sausage making.  Time will tell  Smiley
