7 Day Dry-aged Swaledale Mutton Shoulder Bone In
Region: Yorkshire Dales National Park, UK
Shelf Life: 6 Days
This traditional joint is delicious slow roasted, exuding the deep, almost gamey flavour of good quality mutton, with the herbal notes characteristic of the Swaledale breed. Ours is sourced from mature flocks of free range, Swaledale sheep of over two years old. Roaming the hills and fells of Yorkshire, the sheep graze naturally on wild grasses, herbs and flowers, which translates into meat with rich and characterful flavour. Cooking on the bone further enhances the flavour for a delicious alternative roasting joint.
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.
