Oh, dear, you should have seen us! We are no experts in homemade sausage production and the whole afternoon was disastrous and an eventual source of great hilarity. In our clumsy hands, the sausage skins repeatedly either slipped off the spout of the machine or, perversely split and spread sausage mixture all over the work surface. We finished up with a large amount of cowpat-shaped sausburgers. Nil desperandum and per ardua ad astra, we'll definitely have another go - sometime when we've eaten all these currently stored in the freezer . . .
