So much weird gristly stuff. I bought Johnsonville brand Hot Italian Sausages for the first time to use in a Kale, Bean, and Sausage stew that I make quite frequently. I usually use another brand, or buy some from the local farmer's market, but these were all that was available at the time. I must say, I doubt I'll ever buy them again. The flavour was average, and they were full of horrible chewy gristly bits of unidentifiable material. I cook with sausage a lot, but these were by far the lowest quality that I've used. I rarely review grocery store products, but I was so disappointed in these that I felt I had to say something. — HelenSee All Reviews
