80% mutton and 20% pork are used in these sausages. The pork is added to cut the gamey flavour of the mutton
Mutton is a mature sheep, meaning it's between the ages of 1 and 3. The meat tends to have more of a gamey flavour than lamb, but most of the time it's not much stronger. In fact, that slightly bolder, richer taste works well with spicy sauces, long braises, and velvety, rich stews.
