Gourmet Scotch Eggs in Durham

The other Thursday (last Thursday of the Month) we popped into Durham to do a little sightseeing. The sightseeing was not for us, but our houseguest. It was by chance that the monthly ‘Farmers Market’ was being held in Market Square.
The Clucking Pig. Durham Farmers Market. Scotch Eggs. Pork. Food.
‘Famers Market’ was a bit of a stretch in terms of description.
There were only a few stalls. We had a quick gander at the market stalls, which really did only take a minute or so, and then we decided to buy a couple of Scotch Eggs from the The Clucking Pig Company. There was quite a varied selection of Scotch Eggs available, I chose two, one was ‘The Game Keeper’ with pheasant, venison and rabbit, and the other was ‘Black Pearl’ made from free range pork with award winning black pudding. They cost £2.50 each.
The following evening I decided to serve the Scotch Eggs with a salad. Both of the eggs had a good colour on the yoke, and both were very tasty. The quality and flavour was a million miles away from the mass produced ones that are sold in supermarkets.
