At the local farmer’s market in York, I recently bought some duck sausages. As they are an unusual farm product, I thought I would review them for you.
Duck Sausages With Cranberry And Orange
The sausages were made with cranberries and orange added to them. Uncooked the sausages had a pinky, red colouring and were quite fat.
I fried the duck sausages in the frying pan with a little water instead of oil to try to be a little healthier with our cooking.
I served the duck sausages with cheesey mashed potato and beans.
- Strong taste.
- Gamey flavour.
- Meat was pink when cooked.
- Browned well on the outside.
- Cooked sausages remained chunky.
- Not fatty sausages.
- Sausages did not shrink.
- Could see bits of cranberries in the sausages.
- Lacked cranberry and orange flavour.
I personally did not like these sausages as the strong taste and gamey flavour was not to my liking. I can now see why duck sausages are not on every butcher’s or supermarket’s shelves.
I must point out that these duck sausages were not from The Blue Pig Company who produce the best classic pork sausages I have ever tasted.
