It’s one of life’s little kicks in the teeth that while fat equals flavour fat also equals poor health. The Black Farmer’s gluten-free low-fat sausage may be the answer.
Hardly seems worth it, really. I’m actually prepared to lose a few years of my life if the years I do have I get to enjoy. Even so, I do take some care and if my body is not exactly a temple, more one of those ruins buried in the Amazon jungle, a place once beautiful and now neglected, I do try and keep the roof on it and the walls intact.
And I do like a sausage, even if I am told by health freaks that sausages don’t like me. I don’t eat the rubbish ones, of course, I am not that crazy and so I pay more for proper pork sausages, but good ones contain fat too.
I even make my own, out of pork shoulder and the fact is that without a decent amount of fat they don’t taste all that great or slip easily into the skins. The Black Farmer already makes gluten-free sausages, for those people convinced that they are gluten-intolerant, and now there he has Reduced Fat sausages with 30 percent less fat than The BlackFarmer Premium Pork sausage.
So, we tried a pack, cooked them up in a Toad In The Hole. And they were really rather tasty, I wouldn’t have known they weren’t full fat except for one thing, they were very dense.
I imagine this is inevitable when you reduce fat, the meat compacts down. I suppose too, that leaving out gluten also makes for a denser sausage. So that caveat aside, personally I do like a’fluffier’ sausage, The Black Farmer’s Low-Fat Sausages seem a good way to enjoy your bangers and not feel guilty.
