Ohio Farmhouse
Sausage Chili

4 to 6 servings


Ohio Farmhouse Sausage ChiliA delicious "warmer-upper" after a fine tramp in the woods on a chilly day. Loose pork sausage meat is used instead of ground beef. Look for some that is not heavily spiced. Corn bread is perfect served alongside.


Brown in a large skillet:
1 pound pork sausage
1 large onion, chopped

Toward the end of the browning, add:
1 celery stalk, diced

When the celery is softened, add:
One 28-ounce can (3-1/2 cups) whole tomatoes, chopped
2 cups tomato juice or Chicken Broth,
   or a mixture of the two
1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup or molasses
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1-1/2 teaspoons powdered sage
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Simmer for 20 minutes.

3-1/2 to 4 cups cooked red kidney beans,
   drained and rinsed

Simmer for 15 minutes more.

Serve with:
Sharp Cheddar cheese, cubed
Northern Corn Bread, (see book)
