Stephens (Bishops Stortford) - Pork Sausage

We like a plain pork sausage it is true. Sometimes the more powerful flavours that are used can be somewhat off putting and not appeal to everyone...come on Stephens let's see what you can do...

70%+ good quality pork meat in natural skins and looking pretty fine in the raw is a good start then. Cooked up and browned nicely, another plus. A smooth close texture but still managing to retain good succulence another plus. You can see the way this is going perhaps...but, and there's always a but...unfortunately a small piece of bone in one sausage that was bitten on and crunched shocking one of the team, may be a show stopper though? We know this can happen, but it shouldn't should it?

A real shame as the flavour was meaty without being over the top, and with a touch of seasoning to give you that slight lingering taste on the tongue. Minimal weight loss and shrinkage. A very good bite and chew.

The sausage and mash we used these in went down well, even with the teeth on bone incident. !

Here's the sample details:
125x30mm before cooking, 118x32mm after.

That's a shrinkage of approx 0% & weight loss of approx 5%.
