Farm - Cumberland
While we were
Farm, Margaretting recently, we
also picked up some Cumberland Sausages, along with the Chipolatas and
some Honey & Mustards which we'll
try soon...no point in just sampling
one type is there?
Farm, the artisan sausage producer
based in Margaretting, Essex that
operates from a family run small holding
specialising in "homemade sausages"
from their own rare breed pigs...
Stockwell is passionate about only
using good ingredients. No preservatives, no gristle,
no skin or connective tissue, just
carefully hand prepared quality cuts
of pork get in to her sausages.
Now these cumberlands are "BIG", and
I'll say again, "BIG", weighing in
at 110g on average...and when you
think about it, each sausage is
virtually a "quarter pounder"!
But don't be put off by their size,
they cook up beautifully and taste
wonderful. The texture is
medium to coarse, slightly crumbly
and with the nicely browned natural hog skins this
makes for a really good bite and
a satisfying chew.
85%-87% meat, good quality hog
casings none of which split or
shrunk incidentally, a
distinctive peppery flavour, and above all,
Our sausage and mash dinner last
evening was superb! We really like
these both hot, and cold!
We've said this before I know but
Thursday is sausage making day each
week at Durrants Farm, so don't just take our word
for how good these are too, go get
sample for yourself!
