Award-winning Blacker Hall Farm Shop has brought out an unusual, fund-raising sausage in honour of the Wakefield Festival of Food, Drink and Rhubarb.
The rhubarb and date sausages will take centre stage at a fundraising dinner hosted by Jean-Christophe Novelli on Friday to raise money for Wakefield Hospice. They will also go on sale at Blacker Hall Farm Shop.
Butchery production supervisor Chris Geldard said: “The sharpness and acidity of the rhubarb is complemented with the sweetness of chopped dates. We have tried several recipes and this was the one we are happiest with.”
Blacker Hall Farm Shop is a member of the Q Guild of Butchers and has won awards for its innovative products. In 2005, it won Meat Trade Journal’s Best Farm Shop in England.
Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb is a protected British product on a par with Parma Ham and Melton Mowbray Pork Pies. The Wakefield area once produced more than 75% of the world’s forced rhubarb.
