Anyone know, especially with fennell.
I had the spicy and agree they were great. Not cheap but worth the money for a treat. You'd want to feature these. Not hide them.
My everyday Italian is from Costco. The spicy is fantastic and not expensive. Perfect when you put them in a sauce or lasagna or something like that.
I'm sure there are plenty of good ones, but the ones I really enjoy are from Jerry's Supermarket on Danforth between Greenwood and Coxwell. You can actually see chunks of meat in them, rather than ground up stuff.
This is something that I have been searching for ever since Porco Bros closed on College. The best I have found is at Longo's, they have both a sweet fennel and a hot fennel. But what I liked about Porco's sausage is that they hang it to dry longer then any others which resulted in a much firmer sausage. I have yet to find another quite like it
The Italian sausage at Fresh From the Farm is amazing. It's very lean, very meaty and firm. The seasonings are mild, but the overall flavour is great -- very porky.
Vincenzo's supermarket on Danforth between main and woodbine, north side of of the street, has good medium heat sausage. That is one I use for spagetti.
Pasquale Brothers in Etobicoke (there are a few threads mentioning this store) have mild and HOT.
Both do sell out of sausage at times.
