  Boudin is the French term fo the blood sausage, or "pudding," made
  with the blood of the pig.  Boudin blanc is a white sausage made with
  pork but no blood. This Louisiana version adds rice and is even
  Makes 3 sausages, each about 30 inches long.
  Trim off excess fat from pork and cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks
  Place the sausage casing in a bowl.  Pour in enough warm water to
  cover it and soak for 2 - 3 hours, until it is soft and pliable.
  Meanwhile, put the pork in a heavy 4-5 quart casserole and add enough
  water to cover it by 1 inch.  Bring to a boil over high heat and skim
  off the foam and scum that rise to the surface. Add 2 cups of onion,
  the bayleaf, peppercorns and 1 tsp salt. Reduce heat to low and
  simmer, partially covered, for 1 1/2 hours.
  With a slotted spoon, transfer the chunks of pork to a plate. Put the
  pork, the remaining 2 cups of onions, the green pepper, parsley,
  green onions and garlic through the medium blade of a food grinder
  and place the mixture in a deep bowl. Add the rice, sage, cayenne and
  black pepper and the remaining 4 tsp of salt. Knead vigourously with
  both hands, then beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth
  and fluffy. Taste for seasoning.
  To make each sausage, tie a knot 3 inches from one end of a length of
  the casing.  Fit the open end over the funnel (or "horn") on the
  sausage making attachment of a meat grinder. Then ease the rest of
  the casing onto the funnel, squeezing it up like the folds of an
  Spoon the meat mixture into the mouth of the grinder and, with a
  wooden pestle, push it through into the casing. As you fill it, the
  casing will inflate and gradually ease away from the funnel in a
  ropelike coil. Fill the casing to within an inch or so fo the funnel
  end but do not try to stuff it too tightly, or it may burst. Slip the
  casing off the funnel and knot the open end. You may cook the
  sausages immediately or refrigerate them safely for five or six days.
  Before cooking a sausage, prick the cawsing in five or six places
  with a skewer or the point of a small sharp knife. Melt 2 Tbsp of
  butter with 1 Tblsp of oil in a heavy 12 inch skillet set over
  moderate heat. When the foam begins to subside, place the sausage in
  the skillet, coiling it in concentric circles.  Turning the sausage
  with tongs, cook uncovered for about 10 minutes, or until it is brown
  on both sides. [-=PAM=-]
