small butchers shop that also sells
some veg, on the far side of the stream
on the left as you come in to
the Suffolk village of Peasenhall...well, what a find!
We got a call
from the very
helpful Mike to make us aware of
these "new" sausages and he said if
we were to call in he'd have some
ready for us. Well we were off
to granny's near Lowestoft the
following week end, so not wanting
to pass up opportunity, we swung a
left off the A12 at Yoxford.
We've tried a few varieties of
sausage from Creasey's and all have
been extremely good and are strongly
recommended. BUT, when I rang up a
few weeks later to ask about the
makings (and price as I forgot
again) of what was in our books a 5
banger mark sausage, they tell me
that they don't make them any
longer! No?!....And what's more the
very helpful Mike has retired! ...
A double wammy! Well it's a
shame about Mike retiring and of
course we wish him well, but unless
there's a change of heart with the
new management, you may never be
able to try these JERK SAUSAGES
Now as I say, these were entirely
worthy of a "5 banger mark", but
they'll have to be a 4 now as good
as they were as it's pointless us
making them top of the leader board
if they can't be tasted by others...
Warm spice, succulent, with a slight
touch of sweetness, lovely bite and
a really pleasing lingering taste on
the tongue...damn and blast...these
Perhaps Creasey's will call us again
when they've got something else new

That's a shrinkage of approx 13% & weight
loss of approx 14%.
Sorry didn't get the price.
