Saucy sausages to sizzle at festival

Big bangers: Lincolnshire Sausage Festival is back in Lincoln, with a dedicated companion for the humble banger.

Lincoln’s annual festival celebrating the humble sausage will return to the Lincoln Castle on October 30, with sauce and relish on top.

The Lincolnshire Sausage Festival, created by the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia, is in its seventh year, and had 10,000 visitors last year alone.

This year, there will be even more flavours of sausage to try out, with 50 stallholders already booking their place in the Castle grounds and square.

Meanwhile, one of Lincolnshire’s finest chefs, Rachel Green, will be doing cookery demonstrations and various street entertainment.

However, now you can cover your Lincolnshire sausage in the festival’s own special relish, created by festival organisers Peter Harrold and Gaye Ilston.

Harrold said: “The sauce and relish are made using Lincolnshire red onions, exotic pomegranate molasses and other selected ingredients, which combine to give them a piquant but sweet flavour.”

The condiments can be found on the Saucy Sausage Store stall at the event, branded with Lincolnshire Sauce Company.

The Rotary Club recently won an award for the event, which also donates money form the proceeds to charity.

Lincoln BIG’s Matt Corrigan said: “We think Lincolnshire is the true home of the sausage. In fact, Lincolnshire is trying to get protected status for our bangers.

“As soon as someone tries them they’ll realise why we think they are the best.”
