The powdered milk is supposed to act as a binder and help keep the sausage from drying out. I remember my grandparents adding Carnation instant milk to some of the sausages. But they also added a powder they got from the butcher, but I cannot remember what it was. The milk powder has to fine, like cornstarch, not the flake type of powdered milk. I had the sausagemaker's recipe book, but I can't find it, so everything is kind of what I can remember.
