Walls Irish Sausages
Advantages: Very tasty; Lend themselves well to a variety of dishes
Disadvantages: Not terribly good in a sausage casserole
I don't eat many sausages, although when I do it just has to be Richmond as they have a deliciously light texture and full rounded flavour that lends itself well to most sausage occasions.
Tonight I found myself with a packet of the thin skinless Richmond sausages that needed cooking as they were becoming alarmingly close to their use by date, there were twelve in this pack which cost £1.65 and now I've cooked them all I'm having to force myself to stop going to the fridge every few minutes for another one!
They cook very quickly, in fact the batch I cooked in the oven today were done to perfection within around 35 minutes at gas mark 3. You do need to add a little fat to the pan when cooking these particular sausages as they don't 'leak' a lot of fat whilst cooking and so do tend to dry out a little.
I adore the flavour of these Richmond sausages. This is one sausage in which you can actually taste that the meat in the sausage is pork, admittedly this makes up only 43% of the sausage and an extra 8% is pork fat but I do believe it has been well blended with the other ingredients to give me an extremely flavoursome sausage indeed.
There's a slight spiciness to these thin skinless Richmond sausages and a herby flavour which isn't particularly apparent in other brands of sausage in the same price bracket. They have a smooth texture and I have never come across a piece of gristle in a skinless Richmond sausage, although the thick ones do tend to be a little more inconsistent in quality.
Who would have thought a sausage would be so hard to describe? I'm struggling here to tell you exactly what they taste like so I shall simply say that if you like a sausage now and again (keep it clean please!) then you could do far worse than choose Richmond. My personal favourite is this thin variety quite simply because I prefer a skinless sausage anyway, but the flavour and consistency of them is of far higher quality than other sausages I've eaten.
I had four tonight on a dinner with mashed potatoes and peas and thoroughly enjoyed it. I find the spiciness of the Richmond sausages goes beautifully with a rich onion gravy, but in contrast these sausages also go wonderfully on a sandwich with a drizzling of tomato ketchup or sweet chilli sauce if you're feeling particularly indulgent.
I cannot fault them one little bit. The flavour of these sausages is delicious however you choose to eat them, although the thinner ones are not particularly suitable in a sausage casserole because they cook too quickly and become a little rubbery during the long cooking time required for a casserole. Apart from that though I completely recommend you try them, after all if you don't like them then you don't have to buy them again - but I bet you love them!
Summary: Delicious sausages, perfect now Winter is drawing in.
