What a hidden gem of a place! As well as meat you can find exceptional quality deli produce, a cheese-a-holic’s delight, pie-muncher’s perfection. Please click on the picture at the end of this refiew of their fabulous range of packs of meats, which are simply wonderful value for money, considering the quality of the produce. You can drive here if you want to, but I’d recommend using the Lynn Ferry service for an added element of fun when you visit – the shop is just around the corner from where the ferry docks.
80%. I’ll say right here at the very start of this review, these sausages are good ‘uns, and one reason for that is that the meat is not “perfect”. You can really tell that these are made of chopped up Little Pig Robinson; whether by design or accident, there are plenty of imperfections in the minced pork. We Like That a lot. We rate the meat content as “great”, some sausage fans may not have such robust taste buds....
There’s a lightness to the flavour of these sausages, but that doesn’t equate to bland. Far from it. These are NOT March Quality Meats-style bangers. The pork is allowed to shine through in these rustic bangers, and there’s just a hint of something else there when the meat’s been swallowed. I can’t quite work out what it is, but suffice to say that it’s tasty!
Densely packed, feisty, bolshy, no messing with these chaps. When pulled apart you can see the very roughly chopped pork with some fattier pieces – regular readers know we like it like this. There were a few quite large chunks of gristle, probably not to everyone’s liking. Rather exceptionally, these sausages bond together very closely considering the coarseness.
Average weight uncooked - 58g
Average weight cooked - 50g
Shrinkage - 13%
Praise the Lord Of The Sausage! A figure not between 23-25% at last. Lower shrinkage means more meat for your money, so well done Prior’s, good work!
Value For Money:
£1.38, for four sausages, weighing 231g - this works out as a price of £5.95 per kg, or 34p per snorker. I rate this as very good value for money, I liked these sausages a lot, and I really like the price.
