7 Days Dry-aged Swaledale Diced Mutton On The Bone
Region: Farmison & Co Trusted Farm, UK
Shelf Life: Min. 5 Days
This Swaledale diced mutton is left on the bone in large, chunky cubes of meat for melt in the mouth quality. The bone is large enough to be clearly visible, and adds a rustic effect to stews, curries, and slow cooks, as well as bringing plenty of natural flavour. Expect the succulence and satisfying character that defines our Swaledale Mutton, owing to the wild grazing in upland Yorkshire pastures.
The Swaledale is the sheep of the Dales. They adorn the signs for the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and can be seen themselves wandering the wild stretches between the valleys in search of foraging. Ours mature slowly, at their own pace, on the heather that grows on the tops. This gives the meat a sweet as well as robust and almost herbal flavour, with the Swaledale providing some of Yorkshire’s most renowned lamb and mutton.
Tasting Notes: Robust, Complete, Herbal
Mutton prepared in this way is increasingly difficult to find. The mutton shoulder is cut and diced with the bone in, to yield large pieces of meat on the bone. The bone falls away from the bone upon cooking, with the marrow enriching the dish, and is an old fashioned favourite for stews.
