TRADITION was the winning recipe when Hawick butchers Robert Pringle were crowned 2012 south-east of Scotland champions at the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders’ sliced sausage competition.
James Pringle and his two sliced sausage makers – Paul Ferguson and Derek Scott – were at The Lodge, Carfraemill, to receive their title.
James speculated on the reasons for his firm’s success: “The recipe goes back to my great grandfather’s seasoning in 1902.”
The contest, sponsored by McAusland Crawford, attracted 70 entries from all over the country.
