1 lb lean ground Pork
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp of Fennel seed, lightly crushed
1/2 tsp granulated Garlic (or 2 cloves of fresh garlic, crushed/minced ; if lots of garlic isn’t your thing, you can reduce the amount or cut it out entirely – it is quite optional)
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Sugar (optional, but recommended)
1/2 tsp Oregano (optional)
You can also add other herbs, like Marjoram, Parsley, and Basil.
1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
Combine salt and spices.
Mix with ground pork until well combined.
Wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
