these excellent chipolatas a couple
of times before and we like to go back to
our reviews every now and then so here we
Jason Drage at the Churchgate Sausage Company
makes some very good sausages and
these chipolatas are just such a
well made product. The
consistency of flavour and texture
is a winner as far as we are
concerned and maintaining this
consistency is key. It's the
confidence in this that we buy these for our
Christmas lunch to accompany the old turkey
Now these chipolatas cook up really
well in their natural skins.
They nicely brown and make for "snappy"
bite, just like it should be
as far as I'm concerned. Texture-wise a bit smoother than a
regular porker from Churchgate,
which Jason says is best in a
smaller casing. The taste is
just how it should be too, meaty and
slightly herby but with a hint of
shrinkage and yes, good value.
We noticed at the last review that the
chipolatas had increased a few mm's
in length to 100mm, so it was with
interest we now note that they're back to
90mm now. Hmm? I will enquire when
next in the shop. The
pre-cook diameter and weight loss /
consistent with those sampled in
2013 and again in May 2015.
This fact certainly doesn't affect
the taste, as once again they are all in all a pretty good chipolata
Now I know there's a lot of peeps
out there that consider chipolatas
to be "kids food"...dispel the myth
please! Chipolatas are great
in a sandwich for grown-ups take our
word for it.
Consider this...they cook up a tad
quicker if you're hungry and there's
nothing quite like munching one
straight from the pan!
Mind you eaten cold later...Oooo
lovely, tell your mum!
