Arthur Pipkins is counting down to UK Sausage Week!

Arthur Pipkins UK Sausage Week

With the 29th October 2018 fast approaching, Arthur Pipkins wanted to share some interesting sausage facts with you:

  • The word sausage is derived from the Latin word ‘salsus’ which means something salted.
  • It is believed that sausages were brought to Britain by the Romans sometime before 400 AD. Since then, various English counties have each had their own way of flavouring their local sausage – e.g. Lincolnshire uses fresh Sage and Cheshire uses Caraway and Coriander.
  • There are more than 500 recipes and flavours for sausages in Britain.

  • Sausages are mentioned in The Odyssey which was written by Homer more than 2,700 years ago
  • Sausages were called bangers during World War II because they contained so much water they exploded when fried!!
  • Classic Pork sausages are the nation’s favourite, with other popular varieties including Cumberland, Lincolnshire, Pork and Apple, Pork and Leek and Pork and Herb. Newer flavours gaining in popularity include pork and caramelised onion and pork and sweet chilli.
