Oswaldtwistle butcher wows judges with sizzling entries in NW pork championship

AN OSWALDTWISTLE butchers has proved it has the best bangers in the business after winning eight awards in a regional pork championship.
Sausage specialists Ye Olde Sausage Shop scooped a total of seven gold, and one silver, award at the North West Butchers’ Pork Product Excellence Awards, with their ‘Old Fashioned Pork Sausage’ wowing judges to be crowned champion of the Traditional Pork Sausage category.
As part of the haul, Ye Olde Sausage Shop employee Jessica Leliuga, 20, picked up an astounding three gold awards in the Young Sausage Maker category with her ‘Italian Pork and Garlic Sausage’, ‘Cumberland Style Sausage’, and ‘Pork and Leek Sausage’.
The event was held at the Reebok Stadium, in Bolton, and drew in 40 butchers armed with some 250 products.
Owner Martin Teese said: “Thirteen years ago my father entered a competition and won with his Lancashire pork sausage. This spurred him on to produce a new variety to enter into competitions – and so the ‘Old Fashioned Pork Sausage’ was born.
“Having topped the same category last year with our tasty Cumberland, we wanted to enter a sausage that had the potential to win again this year.
“Our ‘Old Fashioned’ is a coarse sausage, which only goes through the mincer once, and uses quality local ingredients to produce a fresh and tasty banger.
“We pride ourselves on using fresh, quality, well-sourced ingredients – which is crucial for any good- quality sausage. We make around 100 ‘Old Fashioned Sausages’ every day, and its success with customers is down to the fact that it is packed full of quality pork and flavour.”
Martin added: “It’s great that the roadshows give young butchers a chance to show- case their abilities.
“Jessica has been working for us for eight years and we are extremely proud of her achievements.”
