A Family Tradition of Sausage Makers (VIDEO)

Have you ever wondered what goes into a humble sausage? And, if you knew, would you continue to eat it? Well, good news is on the horizon. This 4th generation German sausage-maker, from Otto's Sausage Kitchen, makes incredible styles of handmade sausages. I stopped in and filmed behind-the-scenes as they ground the meat, added a variety of spices, filled the casings, and smoked the sausages. Started in 1922, Otto's continues to be a favorite food-stop in southeast Portland.
