You will see from our archives, Glenn has brought in summer sausage before but this is not your ordinary summer sausage!! Glenn has previously developed a sausage recipe with cheddar cheese mixed in but pepper jack is a whole different type of cheese!!! Glenn’s recipes cater to the general public with an inclination towards future sales of these items, so he will be gentle with the added ingredients; and that includes his use of both the jalapenos and pepper jack cheese. Sometimes jalapenos themselves will distance eaters from anything containing them but Glenn’s recipe is well balanced. You can taste a slight zip along in the sausage flavor but it is far from extreme. The same with the pepper jack cheese. I know that this type of cheese, white in color, can be loaded with specks of red and green bits; indicating the amount of hot pepper mixed in the batch. His sausage is a delicious balance of lean beef and pork – oh, so good!!!
Again, Glenn is very taste bud conscious of the consumer with his recipes. This recipe’s flavoring is slight yet intriguing to stimulate your palate just enough to want to go back for more!!!!!
Glenn’s side dish product is something from New York, Yancy’s Fancy Horseradish Cheddar Cheese Curds. OK, a cheese lover like myself found this product to be outstanding but let me warn you – if you don’t like the flavor of horseradish, this cheese is not for you!!! If you do like horseradish, you will find yourself popping curds in your mouth continuously until the bag is empty!!!
Stop in and visit Smokehouse Glenn in the Country Plaza of Ishpeming and tell him Dennis sent you in to get some of these tasty items featured today; jalapeno & pepper jack summer sausage AND horseradish cheddar cheese curds!
Remember, if there is any sausage recipe idea that you would like Northern Meats to develop in the test kitchen, mention it the next time you come in and purchase something from Smokehouse Glenn. I know you’re gonna love the final product!!!
