try this
Lithuanian Kielbasa
To 5 pounds coarsely ground pork butts add 1 heaping teaspoon pulverized whole mustard seeds, 1 heaping teaspoon whole allspice and 1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns. Add 1/2 large onion and 1 large clove garlic, finely minced; 1/4 cup salt; and 1/2 cup water.
Mix thoroughly, and stuff into casings. Poach or boil for 20 minutes. Makes 6-8 servings.

or this one its polish
1-1/2 lbs, lean boneless pork
1/2 lb. boneless veal (optional)
If you do not add the veal then add 1 lbs. of pork
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp. mustard seed
1/4 cup crushed ice

Cut the meat into small chunks, then grind the meat with the seasonings and ice, mix this well. Stuff the meat mixture into the casing. Smoke in your outside smoker following the manufacturers directions, or you can place the sausage in a casserole, cover it with water. Bake at 350 degrees F until water is absorbed, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. This only makes about 2 lbs.
When making sausage by hand, tie a knot about 3 inches from one end of a cleaned sausage casing and fix the open over the spout of a wide based funnel, easing most of the casing up onto the spout. Then spoon the mixture into the funnel and push it through into the casing with your fingers. Knot the end and roll the sausage gently on a firm surface to distribute the filling evenly.

ok good luck
