How time flyes! we are offcially 60 years old this week. Since 1985 we have devoted a large part of our time to making and developing new sausages. In the early 1990’s we made this sausage for a wedding up in the Sheraton Hotel and we thought what a great way to celebrate our anniversary.
The sausage itself is a simple pork mix with breadcrumbs, our own secret seasoning and some provence herbs, then the fun begins. We chopped in a little oil several small truffles which tasted just superb – sorry to say not all the truffle got to the sausage, mmmm – then we add Mumms Champagne instead of water.
Why Mumm’s Champagne, well it is a perfect balance of sweetness and dry taste to compliment the sausage. We remember playing around with several types of champage to get the right balance – What a job !
The result is quite a strong tasting sausage where you really can taste the truffle coming through and then the little afterkick of the champagne. Of course this is not a cheap sausage with the ingredients adding up to £105 for a batch of little over 4 kilos. You wont find it for sale in the counter or online but should you ever need a batch, we certainly can accomodate.
Pop into our shop in Broughton Street each Saturday in May and you can sample this extravigant sausage for yourself or even win a small pack in our prize draw, again run till the end of May.
Come and celebrate with us and see what has kept us in business since 1955.
