Why are sausages joined together?

What is the point?

They aren’t ‘joined together’.

The skin is one long tube. The twists are to mark out the individual sausages.

Is this a serious question?

It makes it easier for dogs to steal them.

Quite often they aren't now when you buy them.

Tricyrtis - 17 Oct 2020 10:26:38 (#5 of 154)

They probably start off joined up, it'd be a massive faff making them using individual skins.

Dogs running off with a string of sausages: where are they now?

I am lazy and it's annoying having to cut them though.

djsuggz - 17 Oct 2020 10:29:30 (#8 of 154)

Surely they should now be 1m+ apart?

I get confused.

Tricyrtis - 17 Oct 2020 10:32:17 (#9 of 154)

I'm not lazy and have discovered that home made sausages are massively tastier than shop bought sausages.

Veggie sausages aren’t.

Tricyrtis - 17 Oct 2020 10:40:20 (#11 of 154)

Veggie sausages don't count, imho.

I hate the skins on sausages and usually just scoop out the innards to add to a pasta mix.

It’s the links effect, innit?

pranzingfrogg - 17 Oct 2020 11:03:24 (#14 of 154)

Banger of a question, though.

Tomnoddy - 17 Oct 2020 11:04:58 (#15 of 154)

Mmm... Two links in a roll... Mmmmmmmhhh.

HerrWalrus - 17 Oct 2020 11:06:52 (#16 of 154)

Given a choice between Walls' sausages and Richmond sausages, would you plump for the fish-cakes?

Tomnoddy - 17 Oct 2020 11:08:42 (#17 of 154)

Heck, yes.

My grandad was a butcher, I used to help him make sausages. He used to put the sausage skin on the end of a tube on the sausage machine and turn it on.

As a 7 year old it was fascinating to see this long sausage pouring out of the machine and into a stainless steel bowl underneath. Then he would pick it up and twist it into links before putting it into the (huge) fridge.



This is my sausage story.

Tomnoddy - 17 Oct 2020 11:12:03 (#19 of 154)

However, Lorne sausages don't have links, ever.

Gotout - 17 Oct 2020 11:12:34 (#20 of 154)

Mmmm, Lorne sausage...
