Brentwood pupils’ winning sausages are on sale in supermarkets
Prize-winning sausages created by pupils from a Hutton school are being sold in Waitrose supermarkets.
The children from Woodlands School put their culinary skills to the test in an attempt to create the best sausage in East Anglia.
They won the Schools Sausage Competition, run by Waitrose and Musk’s, and scooped �1,000 prize money. Their champion sausage, the Hutton Manor Breakfast Sausage, is being sold in Waitrose stores in East Anglia until the end of July.
The school launched its first Sausage Club in January and the seven children who signed up learned how sausages are made from local butchers.
They experimented with flavours culminating in their final product which contains mushroom, tomato, smoked bacon and Worcestershire sauce.
The panel, including managing director of Musk’s, Chris Sheen, and Fresh food meat buyer for Waitrose, Jamie Matthewson, voted almost unanimously for the Hutton Manor sausage.
