First Cumberland

Postby fusion555 » Fri Nov 04, 2016 12:03 am

So today, wife went to work, first day alone after my visitors from UK left, they had brought the phosphate needed for me to make my much awaited Cumberland.

I used the Polly Perkins recipe from this site, 1kg of Pork Butt and all ingredients to the last gram (well i was 7 grams heavy at the end :D )

Made 2 lots of fresh sausage before this, first was a Pork and smoked tomato from another site, second was a chicken, both were good but i know this is going to be better, how? you may ask lol, well it actually smells like sausage when it was mixed, real sausage meat.

I have a small patty that was left in the tube when i was done, thats for a snack tonight, rest is in the fridge overnight.

A question, if, and it will be a big IF there is any left tomorrow, do i vac pack it and keep in ref?

I will follow up when its been tested

Freeze or use. That answers the question! But it's fantastic that you've found a sausage to please. :D

Glad you found a winning recipe, but why the phosphate in a fresh sausage?

Never mind, I just looked it up and see it's part of the recipe

It doesn't need it Dan.

IIRC, Oddley was asked to produce a clone of a commercial Cumberland sausage as against a traditional one. Hence the phosphate.

I think Dave has covered Phosphate quite well. The reason I included it was because you are looking for a commercial mix and most of those contain Phosphate. I left it as a separate component and not part of the seasoning so you or anybody else can leave it out easily. If you do leave it out it won't be the same sausage.

The last time I had a shop bought Cumberland was when we had run out of home made. My wife trooped in with some Tesco's finest Cumberland, my family tasted them and they were immediately thrown in the bin, we went without sausages till I made some more.


You can see from this that Oddley was asked to produce a clone of a commercial Cumberland sausage as against a traditional one. Hence the phosphate.

I guess it was the commercial taste that i remembered i was looking for, i did find it with this recipe, couldnt resist a 6" piece on the BBQ as i was cooking some fish yesterday. Oh boy.
Todays lunch? Cumberland sausage with onion gravy :D Happy camper.
