Giggly Pig (Romford) - Welsh Dragon

Giggly Pig are based over at Harold Hill, Romford just off of the A12 Junction with the M25 towards London...they were over this way at a food fair...bought a few packs from their stall...

80% pork from Giggly Pigs own "home reared saddle back pigs" with a good amount of rusk (10%) in quality skins that cooked up beautifully. 

We were expecting fire and brimstone, but we're pleased to say nothing like that as the balance of fire from the chilli was very under control and left you with a tingle rather than searing heat.  We all liked these very much.

Texture-wise these sausages are not over minced and we felt just shy of medium.  Good skins, no splits and a really nice bite.

Shrinkage in cooking was OK, and weight loss was acceptable too.  Eaten cold, OK, but best eaten hot!

10.99 / Kg may be as we've said before a tad on the high side perhaps but we would justify this again as these are a really well made quality sausage.

All in all a good tasting sausage that we would buy again.
