Thanks to Le Charcutier Anglais for this.
No, we won’t be reviewing a Vietnam war film from the 70’s, this Apocolypse Now is the name of the seasoning for the alledged Hottest sausage in the World. Franco of www.sausagemaking.org sent me this seasoning to try and to give him some feedback.
Sadly the seasonings name is also the name of a currywurst in Germany as I found with some research on the internet, this will cause some confusion for sure. Anyway back to the seasoning, when it arrived I read the instructions supplied, they advised it should not be used by people with health problems, nor should it be used by minors or the infirm. Those that do use it are advised to use (PPE) Personal Protection Equipment, this was to include goggles, face mask and gloves.
As I have a health problem myself, I decided to wait until my next Masterclass in speciality sausage making at www.empirefarm.co.uk , here I would ask for a volunteer to take on the task of making this alledged hottest sausage in the world. Our volunteer is Tom, well done Tom for picking up the gauntlet!
I’m also asking myself as the tutor for this masterclass, can I get away without sampling the finished product, I’m beginning to realise that is not an option, oh dear I’m feeling all queer!
Philip who was in class suggested it had no place in the market other than perhaps to be used as a (Dare) on a pub menu, I have to confess I agree with Philip. This sausage probally is the Hottest Sausage in the World as Franco explains, but who wants such a thing? I have a huge sense of humour as most of you know, however I can’t see myself ever making this again.
We did have a bloody good laugh though.
