Pederson Farms Andouille Sausage

This is the second review of Pederson farms products – see here for the first review.

If you read our last review you know how much we appreciate the type of products that Pederson Farms produces, with clean ingredients and no unnecessary additives. Today we are trying their Andouille sausage. Pardon the photo…apparently my photo skills need work.

Let me start by saying that this was not the best example of an Andouille sausage I have ever eaten. But in the style (Andouille), this was one of the best sausages I’ve eaten in some time. I know that sounds confusing so let me try it this way. This was not a GREAT Andouille sausage but it was a GREAT sausage with nice Andouille flavors.¬† Not greasy but juicy, I would describe this as a very meaty sausage with densely packed and well seasoned pork.

The grind was finer then many Andouille sausages I’ve had in the past and it wasn’t as spicy as most.

Neither of those issues however detracted from an excellent sausage experience. I grilled these but they would be right at home in any dish or sandwich, prepared in any manner you prefer.

This gets a strong 8 out of 10 on my scale and I highly recommend you try this product.
