The Cumberland sausage is classically British made with roughly chopped meat and lots of pepper. It is traditionally coiled (not linked), sold by length and because it's not linked you can cook it as a ring.
The best way to present it and cook it is as a ring and to do that you need a couple of pre-soaked bamboo skewers. Coil the sausage up and then truss it, mashed spuds and onion gravy. what a treat!!
