It does not take a lot to make me happy

Having lived in Egypt now for many years I have had to accept that there is a lot of things especially food items that I cannot get here, now most of the time that is not a problem but every now a then I get a craving that I cannot shake, my latest craving has been for British type sausages , I have not been able to get the thought of sausages sizzling on a BBQ out of my mind, now there are sausages here,but they are really not nice,the texture is horrid, anyway I was looking at sausage machines but they are so expensive for a possibly one-off indulgence, that I decided to make like an Egyptian rural housewife ,I cut a plastic bottle in half and placed my natural (yuk) cleaned casings over the pouring end of the bottle, I then put my sausage mix in and forced the mix through the top into the casing, I wont pretend they were the best sausages in the world and they were hard work , but my oh my the sense of achievement at my DIY sausage machine was immeasurable. Have any of you tried out any DIY gadgets and if so were they successful ?

Where did you come from to live in Egypt sheblis? I am curious. Yes the British sausages are very nice and so are the Irish sausages, unique. I miss them a lot. I could buy them online but the price is crazy. I made my own Kefir, but did not have to have gadgets to do so.

@shebish Thanks for telling me Sheblish. Cornwall is stuck in my memory from my younger days. The cornish pasties of course you can't get anywhere here and the ice cream yum!! I can make them, but not the same. I spent a happy summer in Newquay years ago with my best friend at the time. Yes Kefir is delicious.
