Adding Seasoning to Your Pre-Packaged Mix

Gary from Little Valley, NY asked:

About how much cayenne pepper would you recommend to add to your 10 lb kielbasa sausage mix? I would like something mild.


The first thing I would recommend is to start a good recipe book and keep track of every step of the process - especially when adding additional ingredients to your products. What tends to happen is you find the perfect amount for your taste buds and then forget how much you added!

I would start with one tablespoon for 10lbs of meat and work your way up or down from there. Always remember, the pre-packaged seasonings you purchase are simply a base flavor profile of the product you are trying to make. They are not designed to fit everyone's particular taste so modifying the recipe is exactly what you want to do. Just be sure to keep track of what you add so you can increase it or decrease it on the next batch.

Thanks for the question and be sure to let us know how it comes out!
