- "West Trefoil Guild (Newcastle) invited The Northumberland Sausage Company to their March meeting to demonstrate sausage making. A brief talk by the owner of the company on the main ingredients i.e. pork shoulder only, no bits of any other part of the pig, secret spices and a choice of flavours started the proceedings.
Anne Lloyd and Dawn Potter bravely agreed to be the sausage makers. The action of putting the animal gut onto the sausage machine nozzle caused much hilarity ! After that a little too much pepper was added but they managed to finish them none the less . The end result was a fine looking 6 link pack of sausages.
After taking them home and cooking them for supper Dawn said that they were "a little peppery" but still very tasty."
