Porc and fennel sausage
Italian style...i don't have time to make my own this weekend and my GF asked me for one of her favorite pizza at the small party she's throwing on sunday. anyone has any clue of a good sausage place that makes a great fennel sausage ?
I also love a lot of fennel in my sausages - and I'll tell you what I do. I buy some regular "Hot" Italian sausages from the butcher. Then when I crumble them and fry them in the pan, before putting them on the pizza, I smash some fennel seeds with a mallet, and throw them in the pan with the sausage. Makes all the difference. Hope this helps you.
If you are on the south shore, the Italian cheese/charcuterie shop in Marche Village (Brossard) has nice, authentic, coarse sausage (with red pepper and fennel).
They are only available fresh on Friday and Saturday, and sometimes Sunday if they do not run out.
VERY home-made tasting - nothing at all like a commercial italian sausage.
