- Pork Chipolata
As we've said
before we do like a
plain pork sausage it is true, and
chipolatas we really do like too. So
when a friend drops off a pack of chipolatas
whilst we are not getting out very often at
present, that are plain pork for us to try, because he
really liked them, and they are free, you
just have to bung them in the pan and cook
up a nice sandwich lunch...
Going by what our friend advised, he
understood them to be
70%+ good quality pork meat in natural skins,
which is very good start. Quite a long
chipolata as you can see. Cooked up they browned nicely
with no splits or bursts,
another plus plus. Do see the photo below of
the "pan of delight"!
A smooth close texture with good succulence.
In fact all was going well, until I was
asked if we had tried sausages from
Stephen's before. Then just as I was going
to say that one of the team bit some small
piece of bone last time, one of the troops
bit in to a rather firm piece of gristle!
OK this does happen, and yes it's annoying,
but this is both times we've had samples
from this supplier and both times it's
unfortunate but it's occurred.
Yet again a real shame as the flavour was
very good, the touch
of seasoning to give you that slight
lingering taste on the tongue was very nice
and the meat filling had a good succulence
for a chipolata.
weight loss and shrinkage plus a very good bite
and chew. We had these for lunch as
some sandwiches which worked well.
We feel bad raising the matter seeing as our
friend gave these as a gift, but it's an
honest review, so it should reflect what we
have found. I will drop in to the shop
next time I'm over that way. I'm not
going to complain but perhaps buy a few more
to try as I'm sure that we've just been
unlucky in our sampling.
