Perhaps the most famous of British sausages is the Cumberland sausage, which has been a local speciality in the County of Cumberland for more than 500 years. It is normally a chunky, coarse cut sausage spiced with black pepper and made in a continuous coil. We have been asked to make chipolata rings, with small sausage skins. The ingredients for Traditional Cumberland sausages consists of: boneless pork meat, rusk water and seasonings. The taste of Traditional Cumberland Sausage is quite spicy due to the generous amount of pepper added which is accompanied by a strong taste of herbs.
