Churchgate - Classic Pork

We last reviewed these classic porks from the Churchgate Sausage Company back in Sept 2012.  Some time has passed, so it's only right we revisit our review.  We're going in...

The Classic Pork remains a superb example of a properly made and presented traditional pork sausage. Jason Drage who runs the Churchgate Sausage Company based at Mayfield Farm (nr Sheeering) certainly knows his stuff when it comes to making sausages.

80%+ quality pork mixed with traditional flavouring ingredients loaded in to a nicely filled quality hog casing makes for a very good sausage. 

Now from our previous photos we notice that the filling appears to be minced a touch finer than back in 2012. Certainly from the colouring of the raw sausage compared to the latest would indicate this. This isn't a bad thing but the cooked texture (compare photos) is somewhat smoother.  Still a good bite and chew though. The skins still cook up really well and classic pork is still a great tasting traditional sausage.  I thought perhaps a tad sweeter in taste, but the troops said they didn't get that...

As for the taste when kept back and eaten cold, we still say very good!

These are still one of Churchgate's best sellers and we can see why. 

Go buy won't be disappointed!
