Durrants Farm - Chipolatas

Durrants Farm, an artisan sausage producer based in Margaretting, Essex.  Operating from a family run small holding their speciality is "homemade sausages" from their own rare breed pigs... 

On a recommendation from a business friend we dropped in to Durrants Farm, parked in the yard and knocked on the farm house door to be warmly greeted by the owners, even when we mentioned that we were from Sausage Review! 

Emily Stockwell tells me that she is really particular about what goes in the mix. Only good ingredients are used, no preservatives, no gristle, no skin or connective tissue, along with carefully hand prepared quality cuts of pork get in to her sausages.  Many producers also tend use off the shelf flavourings, but these chipolatas (and the Durrants Farm Special which we'll sample shortly no doubt) have home made seasoning to Emily's own recipe!

A good looking chipolata in the raw!  87% meat approximately we're informed, good quality sheeps casings and a tried and tested mix that delivers.  Now cooked up these sausages are a delight.  Medium firm with a medium coarse texture that gives a really good bite and chew.  The flavour is mild but the meatiness is BIG!  We like these!

Thursday is sausage making day each week, so don't just take our word for how good these are, go and sample some for yourself!
