Newmarket Sausage with Bread
The origin of Newmarket Sausages is the English town of Newmarket, Suffolk. In October 2012 the Newmarket sausage was awarded Protected Geographical Indicator of Origin (PGI) status which means that it can only be called ‘Newmarket’ if made in the area of the English town of Newmarket, Suffolk. There are three varieties of Newmarket Sausage: Musk’s® (a trademark of Musk’s Food Group Ltd, Powters® a trademark of Powters Ltd) and Eric Tennant Butchers. The main difference between the three sausage recipes is that Musk’s uses bread as a filler while Powters and Tennants both use rusk.
