Heimbigner Family German Sausage Recipe
36 lb. medium fine ground pork
4 lb. medium fine ground beef
1/2 cup coarse black pepper
1/2 cup salt
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. saltpeter (or equivalent)
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. allspice (the "secret" ingredient)

Mix well before stuffing. Hang and smoke 4 to 6 hours. - Hersh Heimbigner

The recipe I found originally said 1 cup salt but a hand written note said 1/2 cup. I use this recipe as a starting point, mix, fry up a fresh patty then add more to taste. I usually end up adding a bit more pepper, garlic and brown sugar. This recipe comes from "Cherished Recipes" 1912-1987 75th Anniversary Philadelphia Congregational Church cookbook. Recipe submitted by Hersh Heimbigner, my grandfather. At the farm there is hand written copy of the recipe that I am told is generations old; for example the recipe says handfulls rather than cups. Enjoy!
