Uncle Henry’s Butchery, 15 miles north of Lincoln, has won the Best Sausage Award for their Lincolnshire Sausage live on the BBC One Show.
On Wednesday, Uncle Henry’s attended the BBC One Shows’ Sausage Festival held at their studios in London. Throughout the day, Uncle Henry’s were selling their award winning Lincolnshire sausages to members of the public alongside 5 other butchers from across the country.
At 7pm, the One Show went live and Emma Ward, General Manager at Uncle Henry’s was interviewed live on the show by presenter Matt Baker and guest Harry Hill. When asked how the Lincolnshire sausage open texture is created, Emma said, ‘We are 5th generation farmers and butchers and we make our Lincolnshire Sausages with our award winning home reared pork. We use only the finest cuts, the shoulder and the belly to achieve the characteristic open texture of our Lincolnshire Sausage’. The Uncle Henry’s Lincolnshire sausage is flavoured with a secret combination of black pepper and sage to give it its great taste.
Uncle Henry’s Lincolnshire sausage was judged against the other butchers sausages by members of the public throughout the day and Harry Hill announced Uncle Henry’s as the winner at the end of the live show. In the closing credits, Emma said ‘we are so pleased to have brought the counties most iconic food product to the capital and to be going home with the trophy’.
The One Show trophy is now in pride of place back on display in the Uncle Henry’s butchery.
