SAusages made from the uk’s rarest sheep breed—the bor­eray black­face from st Kilda—have been named over­all cham­pion in a blind taste test by chefs and ex­pert judges at Jimmy’s Fes­ti­val in suf­folk, hosted by Jimmy Do­herty, pres­i­dent of the rare breeds sur­vival Trust (rbst).

star rat­ings were awarded to 29 dif­fer­ent pedi­gree-bred sausages in a com­pe­ti­tion backed by Jimmy’s Farm, slow Food uk, the bri­tish Pig As­so­ci­a­tion and the bri­tish Lop Pig so­ci­ety. raskelf rare and Her­itage breeds bor­eray Lamb sausage came out on top, with Trevaskis Farm bri­tish Lop Pork sausage win­ning best pork, Devon’s The butch­ery Ltd Dex­ter’s Here­ford beef sausage best beef and The Prim­rose Herd best sad­dle­back and glouces­ter­shire Old spot.

‘I urge the pub­lic to ask their lo­cal butcher if they have any rare- or na­tive-breed meat,’ says rbst chief ex­ec­u­tive Tom bee­ston. ‘eat­ing rare-breed meat is a great way to sup­port a breed. by buy­ing and eat­ing this meat, you’re sup­port­ing breed­ers, mak­ing it pos­si­ble for them to keep our rare breeds alive.’
