Mash and Pat's Onion Gravy
recipes comes from Leaning's of Tealby - makers of Viking
Sausages. Established in the 1860's, no butcher's shop
could be more traditional than Leaning's of Tealby.
The entire workforce (of one) takes personal and particular
care over everything that leaves the shop . . . that's
the best way to guarantee that the quality is right.
by hand on the premises in the traditional way, Leaning's
sausages have a considerable local reputation. The overall
flavour is unique. Tasty, moist and delicious, made
entirely from local pork. Every morsel is carefully
checked and prepared by Ian, who has run the shop for
over twenty years, having taken over from his father
before him. The secrets of sausage making passed on
from generation to generation.
