No chemicals, no preservatives! Only meat, herbs and spices. And so much cheaper when you do it yourself! Once you try it, you won’t buy any more sausages from the shops. We always do it from at least 3 kg of pork as you can keep the jars in a fridge for about 3-4 months but it is always gone much quicker!

Homemade Sausage In A Jar


  • 1 kg pork mince or nice fatty piece of pork fresh minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp caraway seeds or more – freshly ground or cut into tiny pieces
  • 3-4 large garlic cloves
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp gelatin

Clean and sterilize jars and lids. Check my video below if you don’t know how.

Add the gelatin to the water and combine together. Mix the minced pork in a large bowl with all ingredients including the gelatin water. Make sure to combine it evenly all together. Fill the mix into clean and sterilized jars at about 2/3 height of the jar. Clean the tops of the jars with a clean towel if you messed them up by filling in. Close the jars and place them on a kitchen towel in a large pot and fill the pot with cold water as high as the mince in the jars or just below the line and put the lid on. Bring to boil and lower the heat to as low as possible so it is just simmering. Simmer for about two hours. Let the jars cool down on the kitchen counter. Serve cold. Keep in a fridge for up to 4 months. Enjoy!
