    1                    Onion
                         Salt and pepper to taste

   during the cooling process.
   
   Serves 4.
   
   [*Note: 1 pkg is a considerably smaller quantity than the smallest spice
   container I have ever seen stateside. And that, alas, is as specific as I
   can get on the subject.  K.B.]
   
   [**Note:  I strongly recommend that anyone contemplating this recipe
   consult a book on how to prepare intestines for use as sausage casings.
