Simon Dennis (Sawbridgeworth)
Now we last
reviewed these porks from Simon Dennis in
June 2012. Some time has passed, so it's
only right we revisit our review. Hopefully
we'll find a proper no nonsense sausage once
Still 75%+ meat we notice from the counter
label. Not too tightly packed, just how we
like them here, and of course in natural
Simon says he's been making sausages for
years and really knows how to make them, and
no doubt he knows what works best...
Cooked up the sample lost very little in
weight. The skins browned well and these
sausages had a medium firm bite with a
pretty good chew. The texture previously was
on the smooth side, but now it's smooth to
medium, which we do prefer. OK they may be a
"small sausage", but good things/small
packages an all that! The seasoning is spot
on too with just enough lingering spice
taste on the palette after eating which does
make for a pretty fair foodie experience.
Price-wise these remain very reasonable. In
comparison with our previous review, they
are same price per kilo and shape/size-wise,
Eaten cold later on, we'll go with what
we've said before, they're spot on. Try
these in a sausage toad, they're once again,
We may need to reconsider our choice of
"everyday" sausage supplier!
Certainly earns an extra half mark for
A proper "no nonsense" sausage agreed. Job
