Description

Our version of an Italian New Year's tradition that can be eaten any time of year. This is our most rich and flavorful sausage. We make these by adding Austrian rind-on pork fat and real Hokkaido parmesan cheese to our sausage grind, then spice it with cinnamon, nutmeg, and just a touch of basil, all fresh. No artificial ingredients, no preservatives used! 

Cotechino is traditionally served with lentils on New Year's Eve because it is said that the round shape of the lentils are the same shape as coins and together with the sausage they will bring real money and good luck in the coming year. I can vouch for the truth of this because I've been eating these sausages with lentils every day this week and yesterday I found a 100 yen coin down the back of the sofa. 

In Depth

Because size does make a difference! Our sausages are handmade and our biggest sausages weigh 150g each. Our sausage packs contain 5 sausages (500g), some 7 (450g) or 9 (270g) sausages depending on the type. This sausage contains 3 sausages with a total weight of approx. 390g

Fresher than our sausages is impossible unless you start stuffing living cows and pigs into casings. Our sausages are processed from the beginning. We take fresh (never frozen) meat, grind it, add natural fresh spices and stuff it into either pork or lamb casings, vacuum pack them and freeze them immediately. Our sausages are neither pre-cooked nor prepared in any way and we don't add any additives or artificial preservatives to any of our items we produce! Hence, you need to cook the sausages before eating - but that is very easy and absolutely worth it. Once you go fresh raw meat sausages you will never go back. 

We don't add any additives or artificial preservatives to any of our items we produce! All the spices we add are 100% natural spices only and most spices are even ground at our processing plant just shortly before we produce our sausages which adds extra freshness. Because our sausages are additive-free they need to be cooked immediately once you thaw them. The only way to preserve our sausages up to a whole year is by keeping them frozen.

Thawing

The thawing time depends on many factors such as size, weight, packaging, and type of meat. Please refer to our thawing chart ≫here≪

I'd never had a Cotechino sausage before, but these are sooo tasty! The spices are subtle but noticeable, the sausage juicy and tender. Seriously, I never got around to trying them in any recipes or with lentils because they were too good straight! Ordering more now.

Came specifically to write this review after sending an email to TMG telling them how much I loved it; will have you twirling your mustache as you chew! The hint of cheese mixes lovingly with the cinnamon and nutmeg, further enhancing the flavor of the pork. Best of all it comes in large 150g sticks in packs of 3, so you'll feel less guilty about stuffing 6 of them in one go (half-a-dozen is half a dozen, no matter what your GP says about a balanced diet). Would make a customer very happy if these were to end up as a regular product.
