A West Yorkshire farm shop is challenging its customers to create a signature sausage fit for a queen
Award-winning Keelham Farm Shop in Thornton, Bradford, is encouraging shoppers to use their imagination and dream up a right royal banger recipe - a brand-new sausage flavour specially for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June.
Keelham is running a Royal Diamond Jubilee sausage competition and the winner will not only see his or her stately sizzlers produced in-house and sold over the butchers’ counter at the Brighouse & Denholme Road shop, but a complimentary pack will also wing its way to the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
The contest is being launched this week, National Butchers’ Week, which runs until Sunday, April 1, with customers challenged to come up with a new sausage flavour they think is fit for royalty. Entry forms are available in the shop and the closing date is Monday, April 9.
Keelham Farm Shop co-owner and director Victoria Robertshaw explained, “We will announce the top three shortlisted flavours, chosen by our master butchers, in late April and will hold customer tastings of the trio in the shop at the start of May.
“We want customers to get involved and vote for their favourite flavour. The sausage that wins the most votes will be unveiled later the same month, in good time for the Diamond Jubilee festivities.”
