Scottish butcher creates yellow sausage for charity

An Aberdonian butchers has come up with a yellow sausage recipe in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care’s ‘Great Daffodil Appeal’.

The chicken kiev-flavour ‘Daffy’ sausage, which gets its distinct colour from the spice turmeric, will be sold at the Q Guild Haig’s Butchers shop in Aberdeen.

“Marie Curie Cancer Care approached us and asked if we could get involved after seeing our World Cup sausages last year. We thought it was a great idea,” said shop owner James Haig.

Carolyn Snedden, fundraising manager for Marie Curie in the north of Scotland commented on the initiative: “It’s something a bit quirky. The Great Daffodil Appeal is our main fundraiser and we’re always looking for ways to engage with people – something a bit different. We’re all really excited about it.”

Haig’s is famed for its whacky recipes. reported on the shop’s World Cup sausage competition last year, which saw the shop make a different sausage for each of the countries competing in the Fifa tournament.

Alnwick butcher Mark Turnbull, national chairman of the Q Guild, which represents 110 award-winning butchers from across the country said the ‘Daffy sausage’ was a fantastic initiative, showing “yet another example of the ingenuity, imagination and community support shown by Q Guild butchers up and down the country”.
