This sausage recipe is an Alsatian family recipe, passed down from generation to generation, and is still used today. The family who shared this recipe lives in D’Hanis—one of Henri Castro’s original settlements—and gets together every year to carry on the tradition of hunting and making sausage together. This recipe will make enough patties for a large dinner party. You can also seal up the extra meat mixture in an airtight freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to two months.
The Texas persimmon is truly unique to our area (Texas and northern Mexico), as it grows nowhere else in the world! Do not confuse these small black, large-seeded fruit for the orange market varieties of fuyu or hachiya persimmons. Castro and the early settlers probably made good use of Texas persimmons in many ways, but one of the easiest and purest ways to enjoy this tasty, sweet fruit is to pulp it.
