    We love to make Swedish Potato Sausage, but we don't use any flour or spices other than salt and pepper. We use whole allspice in the simmering water when we cook it instead. Here are the proportions of ingredients we use: 4 lbs coarse-ground beef ½ cup salt 6 lbs coarse-ground pork shoulder 2 TBLS ground black pepper 6 lbs potatoes, peeled (keep in water) 1/3 lb hog casings, rinsed thoroughly 4 medium onions, peeled
