A sausage is a food made from ground meat, salt, herbs and spices. Some sausages are cooked during processing and the casing may be removed afterwards. Sausage making is a traditional food preservation technique. Sausages may be preserved by curing, drying, or smoking. Sausages can be baked, barbecued, fried, grilled or poached.
Whatever method you use they should be cooked right through, but still juicy. Cook them slowly to ensure that the skins do not burst. This is vital because the skin helps to retain moisture, once it bursts it cannot do this.
