I would like a summer sausage recipe without preservatives in it. No tender quick, MSG or other nitrates. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks so much.

Here is one. I have not tried it but it is in my todo pile.
3/4 Cup Water
1 tea. Garlic Salt
2 Tbsp. Salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. Mustard Seed
1 Tbsp. Liquid Smoke
1 teas. Pepper
1 Tbsp. Onion Flakes
2 Lbs Ground Chuck (do not use lean meat, the fat will cook out)
Mix all ingredients well. Form into 2 or 3 rolls. Wrap in foil and
refrigerate overnight or 24 hours.
Punch holes in bottom of each roll and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 300 for 1 hour. Unwrap foil after cooking and allow to cool. Roll up again in new foil.

Liquid smoke is not only a preservative but also a carcinogen.
