Have you also been avoiding eating out because you can’t trust what goes in it, neither can you trust young Millennial staff? Neither can you trust supermarkets? And then there is halal to contend with, although staying with pork would be safer there.
And nowhere is that more so than with sausages. Where oh where to find proper meat and spices, good casing and the confidence that you’re eating the best going? I’d pay whatever it takes for top shelf sausages … if I could find them.
Even within the range of what is regarded as top quality though, butcher-tastes shove in vastly more belly than shoulder – it might be a local delicacy but I want meat in mine, not fat. Well, some fat of course.
