Pickled Sausage Recipe:

Now, before you start panicking about a never-ending shopping list, let me assure you that this recipe won’t drain your wallet. All you need are some smoked sausages, vinegar, food color, and a few spices that can turn your kitchen into a flavor laboratory. It’s time to unleash your inner mad scientist!


  • 3 lbs. of smoked beef sausage
  • Water about 4 cups
  • Salt about 2 tablespoons
  • Heinz white vinegar about 4 cups (you can use other companies too, I prefer using it)
  • Food coloring, red, about 10 drops.
  • Black pepper about 2 teaspoons.

How to make pickled sausage:

Step 1: Take a medium-sized saucepot.

Step 2: Pour 4 cups of water and start boiling over medium-high heat.

Step 3: When the water is hot, not boiling, add 4 cups of Heinz white vinegar, 2 tablespoons of salt, 2 teaspoons of black pepper, and place the saucepot for boiling.

Step 4: After 10-12 minutes, you will notice that the spiced water has started boiling.

Step 5: Now add the red food color about 10 drops into the boiling brine and let it boil for 2 minutes.

Step 6: After 2 minutes, remove the saucepot from heat.

Step 7: Place the smoked sausages into cutting boards and cut them into halves with a smooth knife.

Step 8: Bring a mason jar and keep the sliced sausages into the jar.

Step 9: Now, pour the spiced vinegar brine into the mason jar with the sausage. Make sure that the sausage slices fully dig into the brine. If not, then you can pour some white vinegar into it. It’s an easy trick.

Step 10: Now cove the mason jar with a lid and ring to seal it perfectly. Let it be at room temperature for a day.

Step 11: When the hot vinegar mixture is cold enough, place the jar into the fridge for 7 days. Let the flavor set before serving.

This is the most common and simple process of preparing pickled sausage at home. It takes time but totally worth it.
