This amount of meat and ice will overflow out of a standard-sized food processor and make a giant mess.Freshly cased homemade hot dogs.Beef chuck ready for the freezer.Freshly ground beef.Ground beef with salt, paprika, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder — no nitrates.A properly emulsified hot dog mixture should be light pink and very sticky. It isn’t pretty.These are hog casings, after being soaked overnight in water. You can also use sheep casings for thinner hot dogs. They’ll work the same way but you’ll get a higher yield.Thoroughly rinse the sausage casings in cold water before you begin stuffing.Slide one end of the casing onto the piping bag tip. Gently work as much of the casing onto the tip as possible.You’ll want to use a needle pop an air bubble like this one if you see it forming.Twist off the sausage when it reaches your desired length.Cooking the sausages gently in water will keep the skins from getting wrinkled when you finish them on the grill or stovetop.Homemade hot dog in a homemade bun.

The Luscious Wines of New Zealand Are Enchanting Bay Area ImbibersWaiparaBABMarlboroughBABwine mapBABFelton RoadBABQueenstownBABPhoto: Erik Castro © 2013Francis HuttBABDuncanBABGibbston ValleyBABAta RangiBABTop Kiwi winesBABWaihekeBAB

The up-and-coming Waipara wine region north of Christchurch is like many Kiwi wine areas in that wine touring by bike is popular.New Zealand's version of Napa Valley is the expansive Marlborough region, which produces 66% of the country's wine and is the home of famous Cloudy Bay.Although smaller than California, New Zealand now has 10 main wine regions, most of them near the coast except for Central Otago.Legendary Felton Road is in a lovely part of Central Otago called Bannockburn and makes some of the top pinot noirs in New Zealand.Adventure-travel hotspot Queenstown on Lake Wakatipu is a jumping-off spot for tours of the Central Otago wine region.Superstar Sonoma Coast winemaker Ted Lemon of Littorai has made great wine in France's Burgundy region, in California and now in New Zealand's Central Otago.Young winemaker Francis Hutt explains that the many large producers of his country's sauvignon blanc brands "pay for a lot of our research and science and help develop markets," benefitting the whole industry.Winemaker Duncan Forsyth of Mount Edward says New Zealand produces a higher percentage of organic wine than does California but different standards prevent this showing up on the labels of bottles consumed here.Gibbston Valley near Queenstown is home to fine wineries like Mount Edward and also demonstrates the beauty of the New Zealand countryside.Like most New Zealand wineries, superstar Ata Rangi nets its vineyards to prevent voracious, non-native birds from consuming the whole crop.Although a small percentage of New Zealand wines makes it to the Bay Area, merchants here carry many of the country's top wines.Terrific syrahs and Bordeaux blends are found on gorgeous Waiheke Island near Auckland, called "the island of wine" and popular with visitors who like to taste wine, dine, hike and bike.
