Sausage Hotpot

This recipes comes from Musk's Sausages of Newmarket.

Queen Victoria was on the throne when James Musk first began selling his famous original recipe sausages from his shop in Newmarket High Street. Musk's famous Newmarket Sausages are still made today using the original recipe created by James Musk in 1884.

Their sausages are hand made in small batches using the finest cuts of fresh pork, a secret blend of herbs and spices and freshly baked bread. This unique recipe is encased in a natural skin ensuring the succulence for which a Musk's sausage is renowned.

A favourite amongst the Royal Family for generations, Musk's have had the royal patronage of the late Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother as well as the late King George V and Edward Prince of Wales. King George would request his order be sent by express train to Balmoral every Saturday, a complimentary note would always follow by return.
