- Pork & Chive
business clients) from the
interestingly named Wiggenhall Saint
German, in Norfolk, called over the
other day and dropped in a big bag
of sausages! You must try these they
OK yes our
friends are from Norfolk and Wisbech
is in Cambridgeshire agreed, but
receiving samples without having to
do the travelling is fine with me.
I'm sure we'll sample some Norfolk
sausages in due course...
Now far be it
from me to pass up the opportunity
to try good quality sausages for
free, so we immediately tried a few! We
were due to go out for a meal that
evening as it happens, so I
convinced the troops that as
we would normally have a main and a
sweet, the sausages would
do as our "starter".
Come on, that's logic if I ever!
So, Worzals Pork & Chive then. They
certainly look good and appear a
well made 85% meat content sausage
in the raw. Nicely filled natural
skins and a good chunky row of sausages,
but why do producers persist with
this...only 5 to a pack! Get
larger trays and put 6 in to them
please. End of rant...as it happens
the taste of these Pork & Chive
certainly made up for the pack size
The skins cooked up really well and
the contents showed a very succulent
medium texture with a very good
flavour. In fact out of all the pork
& chive we've sampled I'd say these
were at the top.
Shrinkage and weight loss on cooking
was a tad higher than we'd expected,
however again the outstanding
flavour made up for this. A
very good sausage that we would
definitely buy some more of.
