THE UNLIKELY combination of sweet chilli and Iron Brew has proven to be a great success when filled into a sausage skin.
Local butchers D.H. Robertson, 7 Fisheracre, launched the new sausage for National Sausage Week which started on Monday.
In May last year the sweet chilli and Iron Brew sausage received the top award in the speciality sausage category at the Scottish Craft Butchers Awards. Now the winners of the award, Stuarts of Buckhaven, are keen that their tasty invention becomes a best seller for other Scottish butchers.
The winning recipe and point of sale material has been sent to 450 craft butchers shops throughout Scotland and they will all be able to make this novel creation.
Steven Bennett of D.H. Robertson, who recently won a national award for his steak pies, said he was really pleased to receive the recipe that demonstrates the common resolve of craft butchers to develop unique products that make them stand out from their multiple competitors.
He commented: “Iron Brew with sweet chilli pork sausage links to one of Scotland’s great icons and I’d like to think that my customers will enjoy what has proven to be a top selling sausage elsewhere.”
