Butchers (Norfolk) - Chorizo
dropped in some sausages recently
they'd bought from a village
butchers close to where they were
staying in Norfolk... I know, free sausages
yet again! Try these they
Now you know
that chorizo has a spicy chilli
flavour, well these are no
different! In fact after the
second bite, the back of your tongue
and your throat will tingle for sure...these
are a powerful sausage!
Frankly not the sort of thing I
would have thought two, eighty year
olds would have been buying.
In the raw these are a dark red
item, obviously there's quite a
percentage of chorizo and flavouring in them.
The in-laws didn't ask about meat
percentage, but given that when
cooked these become a rather solid
"log", I'd say 90% at least.
Don't get me wrong though these are not dry
at all, there's still a succulence,
but wow, a drink of water may be
needed on the side. I had a cup
of tea...couldn't taste the tea at all!
Good skins and a texture of around
medium, so in terms of quality,
pretty good. Good bite and chew
though. Very minimum shrinkage and
weight loss...AND loads of "oomph"!
I admit that I liked them a lot, so
did another of the team, however we
had two "girlies" here who prefer
something less powerful, so, as this
a democracy, marking had to reflect
every ones views...
Worth a go if you're man enough!
