Salt, pepper. Then cook hot and fast, either in a pan or under a grill- but glaze with olive oil if the latter. 

Serve with cumberland sauce or mint sauce.

HAUNCH AND HAUNCH JOINTS

Roast like you would lamb. Roasting joints (500g-1.8kg) are easy to carve.
I'm finding that the ~500g cuts are increasingly popular for a Sunday roast.
A whole haunch, bone in, is typically 3kg+ and ideal for bigger gatherings or occasions.
Lovely with winter roast veggies, or butterflied and BBQ'd.

SAUSAGES & BURGERS COOKING TIPS & INGREDIENTS

Ideal grilled or pan fried, BBQ-d, in stews or in casseroles.

I make these in a chorizo style and to some herb and breakfast recipes, all using hog casings.

The trick with sausages is to cook them really slowly at a low heat. Think 120-150C and 20 minutes. This allows time for the flavours to infuse. If you've never cooked a quality sausage slowly, please try it- it makes a world of difference. You'll never rush one again afterwards.

Because these are made in a home kitchen, whilst I use gluten free rusk, regretfully, I cannot guarantee allergen free.
