Soak the casing in water overnight in the refrigerator. Cut the meat (loin,

mixture should be quite course. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground meat
with the salt, fennel seeds, ground black pepper, whole peppercorns, nutmeg
and cinnamon until very well blended. Using your hands in a very effective
way to combine the mixture well. Remove the casings from the cold water and
dry on paper towels. Load the casing on to a funnel device leaving one inch
of casing at the tip of the sausage stuffer. Slowly twist out the meat
mixture into the casing, being careful not to leave any air pockets or tear

then refrigerate. The sausage is now ready to cook.
