Free bangers for you!

Free bangers for you!

You thought the Liverpool 800th birthday fireworks were long gone – but not quite. Now it's the turn of the 800th birthday banger.Yes, sizzling and fizzing away to launch National Sausage Week, it's Liverpool’s Official Birthday Banger, created and sold by H. Callaghan & Son Butchers in Maghull. The ingredients include pork from just two miles away, a secret spice mix and Cains Capital of Culture 2008 beer, so no need to worry about clocking up food miles.

We have just tasted these princely specimens with some HP Sauce on the side and, in our view, these bangers are a cracker. The beer is the subtlest of notes, the texture of the meat is spot on and the spice is right and all with a real, home made flavour.

Multi award winning butcher Howard Callaghan said: “We wanted to do something extra special that would last beyond National Sausage Week and the birthday sausage seemed the way to go. So we contacted Cains who had a Capital of Culture brew anyway. Then our spice suppliers came up with a special blend to go with the beer. We have added extra hops too.”

We thought everyone should celebrate Liverpool's 800th birthday with a banger, as did Howard. So today we are offering half pound packs to 100 lucky readers who fill in the form below. Winners will be picked at random and will recieve an email voucher which they can exchange for the birthday sausages instore.If you can't wait to see if you've won, then get down to Callaghan's in Central Square, Maghull, (rated as one of the best butchers in the UK, by the way) during sausage week to be the first to try them.
