Totham Bangers -
producer who were seen at the recent 2012
Maldon Best of British Sausage Awards, were
Totham Bangers. We sourced some traditional
pork for our next review...
Totham Bangers of Great Totham (nr Maldon)
sell their produce via farmers markets and
farm shops such as Poplar Nurseries at Marks
Tey where we picked up our sample.
The packaging is a bit light on information
as to what percentage meat content and the
casings used but from the feel these
traditional pork are a good firm sausage
that would indicate a higher percentage. In
fact from the web site we see that all the
sausage range produced are actually
averaging over 93%...
The contents are not too tightly stuffed and
look very good.
When cooked up they're a really good meaty,
medium/coarse texture, succulent, firm and
tasty sausage. Not heavy on spice agreed,
but with good skins and a very decent chew.
Quite expensive at approx 67p a go via the
farm shop but bought direct from a farmers
market for example these may be a bit less
in price, but what you definitely get is a
premium grade sausage.
I don't know about you but I don't mind
paying that bit more to get a superior
tasting product. .
