Somewhat akin to a meat-like product with apple chunks packed into an inner tube- beyond ghastly. Back to the butchers sausages I think.

I don’t know how they keep selling them, the skin is so thick its disgusting, never seems to crisp up either, I wonder what its made from?

 

Coop do nice ones one with an award label on, cumberland i think, sadly the really good pork and leek ones never come in anymore

Tried just about every sausage Tesco/Coop has to offer...  Ugh!

I rarely eat anything other than (Shameless Plug) Scalloway Meat Company's Pork Sausages.

Yes, those Co-op Cumberland ones aren’t bad at all. The best ones came from the butcher that was on the street in Lerwick. Since he left I started getting my sausages from Scalloway Meat Co in Bolts, but I have to say Colin, that they are in second place, plus Cumberlands only seem to be made to order. Recently I have cut back on the sausages and gone to pure meat!

I saw something that interested me online, and that was a tomahawk steak. I had never heard of that cut before.

Back on sausages, the best cooking method seems to be to grill them.

Yup, that's Tesco Finest "meat" everything, and its all downhill from there with their cheaper own brand labels.

 

Doesn't look much like meat....

 

Doesn't smell much like meat....

 

Doesn't taste of......anything.

 

Awful lot of water seems to cook out of it....

The CO-OP Cumberland sausages are surprisingly good.

 

The local butchers have been very hit and miss recently.

Well, went and bought some Co-Op Cumberlands and, with some help, just ate them..

 

They were quite well seasoned but, despite cooking them on a very low gas, somewhat "tough" with a strange rubbery texture.  Back to SMCo I'm afraid.
