Traditional Oxford sausages were made with equal parts of lean pork and veal together with beef suet. Old recipes suggest that this should be in the same proportion as each of the meats, but modern tastes will probably prefer half this. Secondly there is always the addition of grated lemon rind and thirdly they are never put into skins.
