Learning the Traditions: Salsiccia
This was first in a series of workshops designed to allow for our older members to pass on details of some of the fine traditions that make Italian heritage so rich. This workshop focused on making sausage.
showed us the tricks and the "how to" of making traditional Italian sausage. We started with 85 pounds of pork, already ground for us by De Lucas. At the end of the evening, all members took a bag of 3 or 4 sausage links home.
We took a break for a fabulous dinner of pasta and meat sauce, salad and wine. After the sausage workshop was complete, the learning continued with Italian card games.
Thank you to Gennaro Pellagrino for the instruction and prep, Joe Putaro for organization, and Holy Rosary for use of the hall.
