Cowlings (Cambridge) - Venison & Pork

The 68 mile round trip just to get sausages may have been in normal circumstances just a bit too far but calling in on the way home from family in Thurston near Bury St Edmunds made it a goer!

Really friendly butchery staff greeted us and it would be fair to say shopping here was a good experience.

In the raw these Venison & Porks looked very good!  70%+ meat we're informed in nicely filled skins. Again like the Fen Dittons, they're quite a small sausage in the raw, but cooked up they browned really well and the medium texture was excellent. A touch of residual oil in the pan which we we would expect and have seen with other venison / pork mixes.

The natural skins gave a good bite and the meaty firmness was very good too. The flavour good, there was a lingering spice on the palette, which we were hoping for.

A very good sausage made from prime free range pork and locally sourced venison which we would buy again.  Minimum shrinkage and reasonable weight loss.

You won't go wrong with these sausages either.  You heard it from us!

Cowlings (Cambridge) - Venison & Pork (Dec 2013)

Here's the sample details:
105x27mm before cooking, 100x27mm after.
59g before cooking, 54g after.
That's a shrinkage of approx 4% & weight loss of approx 8%.
An epic fail as we didn't get prices! Must do better next time!
