Keep the fresh sausages in the fridge in wrapping or in a covered container, below and away from cooked foods. Store for 2-3 days in the fridge. To freeze, pack the sausages in air-tight plastic bags or containers for up to 4 months. Defrost thoroughly and never re-freeze raw sausages that have been frozen and then thawed.
How to cook:
Fresh sausages can be fried, grilled, boiled or baked. Cooking times will vary according to the type of sausage and size but all sausages should be cooked thoroughly until the juices run clear when pierced with a fork and there is no pink meat.
- Oven grill: Preheat the grill to medium, place the sausages on the grill pan and cook for 6-12 minutes, until
thoroughly cooked, turning every few minutes.
- Pan frying: Heat 1 tbsp. unsalted butter or oil in a frying pan. Cook the sausages gently for 12-15 minutes,
until thoroughly cooked, turning frequently.
- Baked in the oven: Preheat the oven to 190°C and. place the sausages on a baking tray and cook for 20-25 minutes,
until thoroughly cooked, turning halfway through the cooking time.
- Boiling: Place sausages into a pan of boiling water, reduce heat and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes. You can freeze the
sausages and fry or grill the sausages from cooked.
