sausage pricker, old needle, also called fat head, with a small black ball on the dull end and used by butchers to pinch sausages after they are stuffed to release the air and to prevent the skin of the intestine from exploding. As seen above more than one needle is used at a time. [Pers. Memories. Slaughters Mostoles. 2000:2001:2003]

*Ingredientes

7 lb  lean pork
7 lb fatty pork
4 garlic cloves chopped
4 tbsp garum
1 c sifted flour
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp lavender
1 tsp cinnamon
1 c white wine
2 tbsp black pepper ground
2 tbsp salt

Preparation

Grind meat add all ingredients in a trough and knead until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let marinate for one and a half days. On a clear day, stuff intestines.  If it is a rainy day let the meat marinate longer for if stuffed then the sausages will be soggy. Tie them first at one end then the other with the same string. Then still using the same string tie links at various intervals.  Prick the links a few time times. Hang in a cool dry place and fry as needed.

*See almorí for garum recipe. Note that wine and black pepper were replaced with cayenne pepper and paprika after the discovery of America and garum fell out of use after the 15th C.
