This is the classic traditional Irish sausage made to Jane’s Grandfather’s recipe. It is 85% prime, fresh lean Irish pork mixed with some ground pin-head oats and our own blend of spices including mace, nutmeg, coriander and black and white pepper.
These sausages are filled into natural lamb casings and packed without any preserving gasses.
The leanness of the meat gives the sausages a good firm bite. This makes them the breakfast choice of many but will also make a delicious simple supper or perhaps an indulgent sausage sandwich.
It all began back in 1863 when Jane Russell’s great great grandfather Edmund Burke established his pork and bacon business on O’Connell Street in Clonmel.
Over the generations E Burke & Sons established a national reputation for quality and especially the quality of their sausages.
Jane’s grandfather understood the importance of tradition and kept diaries and notebooks of all his ideas and recipes.
His proud motto was “if there was a better sausage, Burkes would make it!”
Almost one hundred and sixty years later Jane is proud to be carrying on this tradition making a range of premium, meaty sausages by hand in Kilcullen Co Kildare. Jane sources all her meat from Bord Bia approved Irish farms and only uses fresh shoulder and belly meat. Every batch is made the same. First the spices are mixed, these include mace, nutmeg, coriander, ginger and white and black pepper. Then the meat is minced and mixed with the spices. Once filled into natural casings the sausages are allowed to hang overnight to settle and packed the next day.
As Jane only use prime fresh cuts of Irish pork we do not have to use strong preservatives like nitrates or nitrites, nor do we fill our packs with preserving gasses.
