Hot Italian Sausage

2-1/2 pounds ground porkimage
3/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon ground paprika
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon anise seed
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Place the ground pork into a very large bowl. Season with salt, garlic salt, black pepper and paprika. In a blender or food processor, blend together the oil, anise seed, fennel seed and red pepper flakes. Mix everything into the ground pork until well blended – (And ?NO!! A spoon isn?t going to work!! You have hands and fingers – use them!!?).

Refrigerate for 24 hours to let flavors meld. Wrap and freeze for up to 2 months.

*Note – to make this ?sweet?, do not add the red pepper flakes.
