Farm (Dunmow) - Nice & Spicy
We attended a
local Christmas Farmers Market at
the weekend and Priors Hall Farm
sausages and pork product was
available from their stall.
with the Priors Hall Farm peeps I
mentioned about our recent sampling
of their Pork & Leek and the
surprisingly rather mild flavour.
They asked whether we had tried
others from the full range of
sausages and although I nodded, I
wasn't entirely sure. Most of the
sausages on the stall had sold out
(which must be a good sign) and what
was left we had tried. We did buy
some haslet though (I like this even
if the young'ns don't).
So when I
called in to our local store who
also stocks Priors Hall Farm
products a few days later, I had a
good "butchers" and indeed the Nice
& Spicy's had not been in our pan
and sampled by us to date. We needed
to fix that immediately.
Farm's Traditional Pork are the
benchmark that our other reviews are
judged against, as the flavour,
texture, bite and quality of the
skins are what you would expect and
should get with a proper sausage.
These Nice &
Spicy's are 80% pork in decent
quality casings with some chilli
flavouring, in fact pieces of chilli
were evident when we did a bit of
slicing up once cooked. Cooked up
these had a good bite and medium
texture, and what's more the point,
tasted sausage-tastic! The chilli is
there for sure but it's been tamed
so you get a superb flavour but
without the stinging lips and for me
the inevitable heartburn later!
weight loss is minimal, and value
for money is good.
cooked up half a pack so we could
taste a few slices, but we were so
suitably impressed with the taste, I
cooked up the rest to rustle up some
quick sausage sarnies! Grinning
faces all round!
These are FAR
BETTER THAN a "good everyday
sausage", so you really must get
some to try. See their web site
(address below) for the farm shop
opening times if you can't get these
from your local shops.
