Yup, I laughed to when I saw this email in my inbox. But it’s for real:
Seasonal Pantry is starting a sausage club. Fall is around the corner, and football season is already underway. That means it’s time to cook up some sausage and get ready to eat hearty meat for the cooler season.
How does it work?
Our club will work like a CSA, or a community-supported agriculture produce-buying scheme, where members pay a farmer at the beginning of the season and receive a load of fruit and veggies every week.
Here’s what we’ve got to offer:
For the second (pickup 1) and fourth (pickup 2) weeks of October (pickups are Thursdays and Fridays October 7 or 8 and 21 or 22), you’ll get three packages with 5 to 6 sausage links in each one. A sausage is 3 to 4 ounces, so that’s roughly 6 pounds of meat for the whole month. At the beginning of the week, you’ll get an email with the types of sausage and where to come get them.
Details after the jump.
What types of sausage do I get?
Each week, you’ll receive one breakfast sausage, a mild sausage, and a bolder, more robust sausage. Some ideas in the works are Mexican chorizo, sweet and spicy Italian, Buffalo chicken, merguez, and bratwurst.
How do I cook the sausage?
I can’t come home with all my members and cook their sausage for them, however I will be putting recipes on seasonalpantry.com. I will offer different ways the sausages can be used in everyday meals. Fresh sausage will last in the fridge for about 2 weeks, or you can freeze them for later use.
How much is the club?
The club is $50 for two weeks (pickup 1 and pickup 2). To put that price in some context, sausages at Whole Foods average $6 to $8 per pound, and some purveyors at the Dupont Circle market charge as much as $9.50 per pound. My sausages are hand-crafted on a small scale.
How do I join?
The October club is going to be limited to 30 spots, with more available in November.
Once payment is made your spot is then reserved. Pleas make a payment at our paypal account of $50.00.
