- Classic Pork
With 90% free
range pork we were expecting more
from these sausages. As such
we were left disappointed.
Seasoning was insufficient and they
were overly firm and dense when
cooked, and very chewy.
Whilst cooking it was noted that a
small amount of pale jelly like
substance (similar to that you see
when cooking pork chops in a covered
Pyrex dish) did come out of the
skins. This ran clear but the skins
didn't cook up like "normal"
sausages and were tough.
We kept back a couple and put them
in the fridge to eat when cold the
following day. The colour of the
skins did look strange. Had it not
been for the reasonable cold eating
with some additional black pepper
and dot of mustard, we would have
only awarded a single banger mark!
Grilling and BBQ with these produces
similar results and the skin takes
on a brown "plasticky" look.
