    Meat Grinder Oil.

    Hi guys.

    I have just bought a hand -operated meat grinder from Macro's, with an attachment to make sausages.

    It looks something like this.



    The problem is, all the moving parts are covered in oil and by the smell of it, it isn't for consumption.

    Tomorrow I'm going to scrub it clean but I don't know what to replace it with.

    Does anyone know of a product I could use as a safe alternative?

    I'm going to be making my own sausage and up to now I have a killer English Breakfast Sausage recipe.

    1 kilo ground pork

    2 tsp salt

    3/4 tsp pepper

    1/2 tsp ground ginger

    1 tsp Sage

    1/2 tsp nutmeg

    1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

    1/2 cup ice water.

    Mix all the ingredients and away you go. Don't worry if you have no sausage casings, just make them as patties.

    They taste great!

    Cheers, DsD.

    I have the sausage skins, from Makro. It's the oil to keep all the parts moving I'm worrying about.

    Some of the parts obviously come into contact with the meat.

    You could use olive or vege oil or ghee, but I think if you look closely you will see that the mechanical gearing is quite separate from the internal meaty bits.

    I too occasionally make my own sausages, but that is a lot of nutmeg in your recipe ?

    Any good vegetable will suffice for moving mechanical parts.....

    Most likely the parts are greased so as not to rust when sitting as stock in a shop.

    The fat in the meat remains as grease on the internal parts.

    If you use regularly you don't need to worry.

    In the "home brew" world we use "chemipro" to clean and sterilise everything with, between brews. Very strong, very powerful stuff.

    Just use lard. The stuff on the parts is probably something like cosmoline to keep the parts from tarnishing. Wash them thoroughly and grease everything up with pig fat before and after each use.
