Piggott's (Buntingford) - Old Timer

Dropped in to the Buntingford Carnival to meet our daughter and take in what's a really good street carnival atmosphere.  Many of the shops were open and promoting their goods and produce.  Piggott's the butchers had a barbeque set-up outside and the aroma from cooking sausages was like a homing beacon for me...

Old Timer as a named sausage had me intrigued.  I'm sure these must be around 70% plus meat in natural skins and in the raw looked very good in the shop display.

Cooked up the skins did brown really well but the sausage content itself still had a pinky look to it even though it was definitely well cooked.

Taste-wise nice and herby but with quite a "porky" flavour.  Also slightly more salty than we would prefer.  Texture-wise smooth to medium, with a good chew, however the skins were a tad tougher than we would prefer.

We agreed that these were an OK sausage but not something we would purchase regularly.
