of Old Harlow, Essex do produce and
sell some particularly interesting
examples of sausage delight using
all sorts of ingredients and
flavours. Adding 10% Doom Bar
ale in to the mix of some classic
porks will no doubt raise some

Churchgate, and the quality
ingredients that they use is very
evident in their produce. Yes the

sausages with no doubt some of the
liquid in the mix substituted for
