When an English farmer's market customer approached us asking for a "really sausagey sausage...you know?" We didn't really know. Brooks went back the farm, closed himself in the butcher shop and began mixing variations of sage, pepper, allspice and mace. What emerged was our most versatile sausage - the perfect blend of spices to enhance the pastured pork we put so much care into raising. This one is best with a mountain of mash, but works great on the grill, in a sandwich, and even for breakfast in a pinch!
North Mountain Pastures is a small family farm dedicated to producing great food using ecologically sound production practices. We farm on 84 acres in Perry County, Pennsylvania, in a way that heals the land, nourishes people, and treats animals with respect. This means animals are naturally raised outdoors, on grass or in carefully managed woodlots, and fed only non-GMO grain. We don’t use hormones, antibiotics, or other chemicals to medicate livestock.
Worried you don't know how to cook? Here's the thing, the quality of your ingredients is sort of like a cheat code for cooking. Your dish is only as good as your weakest ingredient. Grab some fresh produce, a good NMP sausage, and some potatoes, rice or polenta...you got a meal!
You can't find food like this just anywhere.
I did not like the mace and allspice flavors. The cooked meat texture is also drier than expected.
This sausage is great in lots of dishes, especially in soups in the winter
Mild but flavorful — enjoyed by folks with widely varying tastes. Highly recommended,
