Glad to be of service!  Stefan bows deeply.

<<< As there are quite a few experienced sausage makers on this list, I'll ask, what's your favorite period sausage to make and what's your favorite to eat? >>>

First, how broad is your definition of "sausage"? Does it have to be in an intestinal casing? Or do other casings count? Haggis very much like sausage but is usually encased in a different organ.

Many period puddings are like sausages without a casing.

A bit broader in scope than just making sausage but the final product is sausage.
