rang me and said the lads had some
sausages for us. So not being
slow in coming forward, I popped
over to the shop in Dunmow High
Street to collect.
We like a big bold taste so when Alan said he had some Moroccan examples, well bring it on! Like the others from Coulsons these are over 80% meat in good quality natural skins and to go with the BIG taste these are BIG in size. Let's not mess about, they are big at 165mm / 132g and even with the minimum shrinkage when cooked, one each as sausage and mash would be sufficient I'm sure.
They cooked up well and we got a thumbs up by one of the troops who gets very fussy about chewy skins. That's OK then...
A really good kick with the spice, a subtle mint undertone, and a slight sweetness one of the team picked up. Me, I couldn't taste my cup of tea for quite a while...a good touch of chilli in there perhaps?
Reasonable weight loss and shrinkage. Medium texture retaining very good succulence, and a flavour that is very memorable. A very good bite and chew.
We did have these in a sausage and mash that was a hit with most...one girlie thought they were "too spicy"...hey ho!
All in all a very good well made sausage in our opinion.
Well done again lads...

Here's the sample details:
165x32mm before cooking, 155x31mm after.
132g before cooking, 123g after.
That's a shrinkage of approx 9% & weight loss of approx 6%.
