Sausage shop tastes success at awards

Sausage supremos at Croots Farm Shop in Duffield have tasted success again for their award-winning bangers.

Staff at the shop scooped a gold award for its Breakfast Banger in a competition to mark British Sausage Week, which runs from November 5.

The accolade is the latest in a strong of awards for the store since it opened more than four years ago, including a Great Taste Award - regarded as the Oscars of the fine food industry.

Now it is gearing up for a sausage celebration to mark the annual week dedicated to the British banger – with plans for two new sausages.

Themed to tie in with bonfire night, the newly created sausages are the Croots Firecracker – tasty pork laced with chilli – and the Croots Sparkler, made with fig relish.
