Allan Learmonth revealed:-
"It was a really big surprise to win. I was quite overwhelmed when it was announced at Carfraemill. I wasn`t expecting to win that at all.

"You always enter your products hoping that you are going to win but never think you are actually going to do it. It is just tremendous for the shop.

"To win the South East of Scotland title was an honour but to win overall is totally overwhelming."

Apprentice Stewart Ramsay made the winning product and Allan has drummed into his young employee that consistency is vitally important in a product if it is to be good every the time. Other than that neither Allan nor Stewart was no giving much else away about how to make a champion sliced sausage.

"I will not tell you the secrets" added Allan, "but part is using produce from local farmers. You only get out of a product what you put into it. If you put good ingredients in then the end result will be good and this just proves that it true."

So Allan is now hoping that good beef and a finely tuned recipe will have Jedburgh jumping with sausage lovers:-

"Jedburgh is a good stop off point halfway between Newcastle and Edinburgh. We get a good passing trade and repeat custom. People come from far and wide just to stop off at the shop."
