    There has been no interest in a 125-year-old family food business which went on sale with its trademark recipes for faggots, the owners have said.

    The Cook Shop in Old Hill, near Halesowen in the West Midlands, will now close on 30 August.

    Nigel Brazier, the fourth generation of his family to run the shop, said it was on sale for £90,000 but no potential buyers had come forward.

    "It saddens me on several levels, the financial side of it; it would be nice to sell the business as a going concern but also for it to keep going," he said.

    I had no idea that's what they call meatballs. Seems fitting in a way.

    Nigel sells his famous faggots - which are usually made from pig offal and parts of the animal usually discarded, such as the heart and liver - for just 50p.

    "Faggots can be eaten hot or cold and when served hot are traditionally accompanied by peas."

    "Faggots were developed as a way of using up all the bits of pig that would otherwise be discarded."

    • Faggots are made with minced offal from pigs, such as hearts, formed into balls
    • They are traditionally served with mashed potato, peas and gravy
    • Groaty Dick - or Grorty Dick - is a speciality from the Black Country, sometimes called Groaty Pudding
    • It is a type of stew made with beef and thickened with the addition of grains (the groats)

    The Great British faggot
    Faggots are a cheap and delicious dish, especially served with mash and mushy peas. You’ll need a mincer for this recipe and a good butcher.

    Ingredients
    Preparation method
    1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the diced meat. Return to the boil, then drain the meat and set aside to cool.

    2. Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas 2.

    3. Mince the meat, add it to a bowl and stir in the onion, herbs and garlic until well combined.

    4. Shape the mixture into six balls, lay a small bay leaf on top and wrap in the caul fat.

    5. Sit the faggots in a roasting tray and pour in the stock. Cook the faggots in the oven for one hour.
