This national favourite from Cumbria is easy to make and ever so tasty. As a family we really enjoy a Cumberland sausage coil with creamy mash and seasonal vegetables and don't forget the gravy! All you need for this recipe is a meat grinder with a sausage funnel attachment.
All you need to make great homemade sausages is a meat mincer with a funnel attachment. If you are new to homemade sausage making then using natural hog casings are a good way to go initially as they are robust and result in a nice thick plump sausage. Casings are usually sold in a variety of forms depending on your preference, and can be found readily on line however it would be a great idea to speak to your local butcher for some first hand tips!
Really tasty. Used my Artisan mixer with the grinder attachments lovely taste like the real thing! - 04 Jan 2015
I grew up in Cumbria so have high exceptions and this recipe is OK. Next time I will re balance the herbs to my own taste but its a good starting point. One thing all sausage recipe should note is that it is the meat and the grinding equipment should be chilled as it makes the process much easier. Also when putting the casings on the sausage spout, press about 1/4in of sausage out of the spout then put the casing over it. The meat lubricates the casing from the inside making it much easier to slide on. - 01 May 2017
