Graig Farm - Lamb & Mint
Time for a change from pork, and what better than lamb from one of the finest organic outfits in the country. As well as tasting great, these sausages are fully traceable. The label informs me that the lamb came from Wilson's farm near Gloucester and even specifies the breed (Suffolk).
The sausages are gluten free (they contain rice flour) and made with at least 80% meat. They are good hot and unusually for lamb sausages cold. We baked ours, they lost a little fat during cooking but not excessively and are very moist and moreish. They are one of those sausages which manage to evoke a roast dinner - a sure sign of good meat. They can be eaten with potatoes (boiled or mashed) but would also work well with a minty couscous .
They cost £7.85 a kg. As well as mail order Graig Farm also sell through a wide network of independent shops - see website for a full listing.
