Whatever happened to milk, water, sugar, eggs?
In this chapter, Joel tells about his experience in trying to make a sausage that had no MSG in it. What started as a simple thought, took hours and hours of jumping through bureaucratic hoops, not to mention that once he finally got a hold of the spices, then he had to go through the obstacle course once again just to get the proper label. All this just for one pound of sausage. Is it any wonder that we don’t have more small farms?
