7 Days Dry-aged Swaledale Rib Rack Of Mutton
Region: Yorkshire Dales National Park, UK
Shelf Life: Min. 5 Days
Visually stunning, and on the bone for maximum flavour, the mutton rack is a line-up of chops in one place and is an ideal smaller roasting joint for two. This classic joint is an autumnal treat, and boasts rich flavours owing to the lush upland pastures where our flocks mature on diets of wild flowers, herbs, and natural grasses.
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
The Rib Rack of Mutton is cut out at ninety degrees to the spine of the animal, leaving the ribs intact with the prized rib meat attached. The ribs are then French trimmed to leave clean bone at the end of each rib for maximum effect. More commonly simply cut into chops, the Rib Rack is a favourite of chefs and increasingly in demand.
Ideal for smaller tables, the 7 Mutton Rack showcases both the quality of English mutton and our skilled artisan butchery. For a truly memorable meal, try cooking 2 racks, then presenting so the ribs interlock for a “Guard of Honour,” served with gratin Dauphinoise and buttered winter cabbage.
