Willow Brook Farm (Peterborough) - Stilton & Leek

Our eldest daughters boyfriend, Ben, was visiting the Stamford area recently and picked up some sausage delights for us from a local farm shop butchery!  Free sausages to try yet again!

Ben bought us the Stilton & Leek which we'll review here and also, some plain pork, and some pork & sage which we'll review separately in due course.

Now the prospect of pork with stilton and leek did at first give me concern as personally I'm not a stilton lover, but I shouldn't have worried because the balance of flavours in these sausages is excellent!  A really good pork taste, with "just a hint" of stilton, and a mild leek flavour make these sausages a winner.

The 75% pork meat and good skins cooked up really well.  A smooth to medium texture, good succulence and the bottom line, a very good taste. Weight loss and shrinkage were acceptable in our sample.

Please see the link below for more information about Willow Brook Farm Shop location and opening times.

Ben can get some more of these next time for sure...
