Whether they’re grilled on the barbecue, served up with creamy mash and onion gravy, or sliced into a sandwich with onions and mustard, sausages remain a firm family favourite throughout the UK.
But did you know that the sausages are one of the oldest types of processed food in history, dating back to ancient times? And that they’ve actually been mass-produced since the 19th century?
And ever wondered why they’re nicknamed ‘bangers’? Well, during World War 1, when the UK suffered from food shortages, producers packed out their sausages with cereal and water. And that meant that when they were cooked on open fires in the trenches, they would hiss, pop - and bang!
Today things are very different, of course, with reputable producers and butchers providing high quality sausages – in many different varieties.
And at The Buckingham Butcher, we have no fewer than 11 different flavours of sausage, all made to our traditional recipe. And, as ever, you’ll not find this quality at such low prices – for just £5 you’ll get 1.3kg (around 18 sausages).
