    Added it to pasta sauce and it was excellent. Thanks x  -  10 Mar 2014


    This was great! I did not have any anise, so I substituted fennel seed- and left it whole. Very tasty! A bit too salty for our taste, next time I'll just reduce the amount.  -  14 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Absolutely wonderful. I used my own ground pork shoulder because it has an excellent fat to meat ratio that keeps the sausage moist without coming out greasy. Mix it up and put in the fridge overnight before either freezing or cooking so the flavors can mingle. I no longer buy store made sausage as I think this tastes much more superior than what is in the stores.  -  14 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
