Sausages with a Bang!

If you haven’t tried our bangers we make every day fresh in our Meat department, this weekend is a good time to start. We make both English-style and Irish-style (difference being the Irish has the addition of ginger) with just the right amount of fat to make the sausages pop and “bang” while browning them up in a skillet.

At my house, I like to roll them around in a sauté pan with a little oil and get the casing nice and snappy. We also have some really good bangers from a company called Jolly Posh. These sausages are larger in diameter and great for a quick Irish Banger Dinner or stuffed inside one of our Bakery buns with some whole grain mustard.

Started by Nicholas Spencer, Jolly Posh was inspired by traditional Irish foods and his hunger for the classic flavors of home (Ireland). Their all-natural bangers are free of hormones as well as nitrites, nitrates, and MSG. In our stores, look for their Traditional Pork Bangers and Pork & Herb Bangers.

Or try some of their white pudding, which is seasoned pork, oatmeal, and breadcrumb mixture that is awesome for an “over the pond” breakfast experience. Just slice it up, fry it till golden brown, and serve it alongside some of our local eggs. It’s magically delicious!

Seafood Recipes We Love

Remember, your fishmonger is your friend and here at DLM. They are knowledgeable and passionate about sourcing the best and the freshest seafood available! But what does that word “fresh” really mean? It’s often overused because everyone says their seafood is “fresh” to the point that the word has almost lost its meaning. Our definition of the word is one we stand behind and is one of the building blocks that has elevated our Seafood department over the years. It comes down to “time spent out of water,” says Jack Gridley, DLM VP of Meat & Seafood, and there are several ways that we keep that time to a minimum. We do so by buying it direct from fishing co-ops that practice sustainable techniques. We also choose air freight instead of having it travel by truck, resulting in drastically less time out of water. The constant stream of new fish in our seafood case is a true reflection of what’s in season. So throughout the year, check with us often as we’ll be featuring a vast selection of seasonal catches as they are available as well as a variety of shellfish. Here are some of our favorite seafood recipes so you can cook up a fish dish for your table.
