Do your children like sausages?
My younger two definitely do, so I took the opportunity to cook them some Black Farmer’s Daughter’s Chipolatas at the weekend, when we ended up with a group of 4 sausage-lovers who’d been ice-skating.
They ate the sausages with a chilli that my eldest made at school. My team will eat sausages with anything, but their favourite is sausages and mash, with gravy. The chilli went down OK, but not nearly as well as the sausages did!
The Black Farmer very kindly sent us the sausages to review; we seem to live in a wilderness when it come to their chipolatas – they’re not stocked by any supermarket within 40 minutes drive nor available for delivery by any supermarket prepared to deliver to us. Yes, we’re in a small village, but not that remote… We can (and do, regularly) get hold of the standard Black Farmer Premium Pork sausages, but I was particularly pleased to be able to try the chipolatas, because they’re more of a children’s sausage, being slimmer and less demanding.
