I cooked up the sausages that I made on my ‘Making Sausages’ post last week, a photo is below.
They look rubbish don’t they lol. They were in fact generally agreed to be delicious and I feel inspired to make more and to expand my repertoire.
I am visiting friends this weekend for a barbecue and I will make more as my contribution to the occasion. My friends are farmers who raise lambs as well as growing arable crops so there will be some excellent lamb from the farm and I think a conversation about making Merguez a spicy lamb sausage of North African origin. North African culture and cuisine is very popular in France, very similar to the UK attitude to Indian food and culture, essentially for the same imperialist reasons. I might do a post if I think it’s of interest, but I think I will definitely make some Mergeuz in the foreseeable future.
