Some years ago, quite a few now, we realised that there was more to sausages that the dreadful flavoured sawdust wrapped in case-hardened plastic that Walls used to sell; the works canteen ones weren’t much better. And over the years, local butchers have put in significant effort to make their own variety of yummy home made bangers.
So, when we’re wandering around the UK, shopping for food, we quite often buy a selection of different home made sausages from the best looking local butcher shop. We’re rarely disappointed, and have had loads of nice meals, and to make things even more interesting, the variety and quality seems to steadily improve.
The Venison and Old Spot bangers from the nice butcher in Stourport High Street were absolutely delicious. His “they’re slightly spicy” Shropshire Sizzlers were also delicious, but were – without doubt – the first two-hanky sausages we’d ever come across.
