Fuller's (Sheering) - Pork Chipolatas

The Sheering Sausage from Fuller's we reviewed last year was indeed pretty good. Well now it's the turn of Fuller's Pork Chipolatas...

I will admit that I didn't purchase these from Fuller's direct, but rather from Brett's Farm Shop in Little Canfield. Regretfully I must have bought them on the way home one day and put these straight in to the freezer without sampling, and "sort of" forgot they were there. So after quite a delay, here we go at last.

The chipolatas follow the same 95% meat mix we were informed in a peppered light Cumberland style just like their bigger brother, the Sheering Sausage.

Considering the length of time in the freezer, defrosted they looked pretty good, and cooked up really well. Now we had one of our senior samplers try these with us. She lives in Suffolk and says "she knows a good sausage from a bad one". (The sniggering at this point had to stop) Perhaps a bit unfair for these chipolatas to get the full treatment from Granny but in her words (in a Suffolk accent), "Oi like 'em a lart".

We found them pretty good too, and they went down particularly well with Sunday lunch. Smooth to medium texture, medium succulent bite with a light lingering taste. Just like the Sheering Sausage, the taste made you definitely want another. Good value at around 22p a go I'd say.

We left half a pack with Granny for her "tea", so I must give her a call tomorrow and see if she had anything further to say on these!

Fuller's Pork Chipolatas...go get and try some! Proper job! .
