Boston Sausage (Boston, Lincs) - Boston

We'd been tipped off that we could get some real Lincolnshire sausages from Borough Market in London.  A bit closer for us than Lincolnshire so on the train again and in to town it is...

These BOSTONS are a very traditional Lincolnshire sausage, and are Bostons Sausage's flagship made to a secret recipe, with a minimum of 80% pork, breadcrumbs, sage and seasonings. They are a best seller we're told by the very friendly Sam we met at Borough Market.

Boston Sausage sell from their premises in Boston and also have a market stall offering cooked product and fresh.  We really enjoyed the visit to Borough especially at Christmas market time...

In the raw these Bostons look pretty good with quite a defined fleck of colouring.  Good skins too.  Cooked up they performed very well and tasted very different to "lincolnshires" we've had before.  Quite a loose texture and "bready", although eaten cold this loose texture had tightened and they ate very well.  Good flavour, although not perhaps as "sagey" as we were expecting...

We included a few here in our 2013 sausage fest and the Bostons came out joint top of the presented sausages in a group tasting.  Thumbs up then all round!
