good looking 58cms of Cumberland
from a small local shop in the Lake
District today...pretty good taste
and the sort of sausage we like....
produced by the Crakeside Meat Co
Ltd of Ulverston Cumbria, OK it was
a bit long to treat as just one for
our review so we measured and
twisted up 4 x 120mm individuals and
a short one from it for our
sampling. See photo below...
Cooked up they're good meaty and
succulent but unfortunately weren't as flavoursome
as we were expecting. Good
spice though but they could do with
a bit more oomph we thought. The
skins were really good and browned
very well. Smooth to medium texture,
with a medium bite. We all
liked these with our mash, peas and
In comparison with other cumberland sausages
we've tried from "down our way" they
compare very well. A bit pricey but
not bad all the same...
enough though...only one each. Must
do better next time!
