Description

A real British favourite, with sweet and tender lamb meat taken from both sides of the prized loin of lamb as a saddle. Expertly prepared, and rolled and boned for an easy carve special, this is our succulent lamb at its best, with the impressive sweet taste reflecting the quality of the lush pastures where our flocks mature on diets of wild flowers, herbs, and natural grasses.

How to cook

This is very much a roasting joint for the top table, with the deep flavour and succulence making it ideal as a celebration roasting joint, or as a special Sunday lunch. For the best finish, roast long and slow so the sweet meat can tenderise gradually and serve with traditional roast potatoes, homemade Yorkshire puddings, and fresh mint sauce.

About the cut

Saddle Of Lamb

The Lamb Saddle is cut by taking out the spine of the lamb, before trimming and rolling by hand the meat into a roasting joint with ample fat covering, then tying. Sourced from farms that have been rearing lamb on lush pastures for generations, this is prime English lamb at its best, with the ample fat covering providing flavour and succulence upon cooking.

About the breed

Hampshire Down

Stocky & Fluffy Southern Sheep

Tasting notes:
fragrant, sweet, rounded
Region:
Yorkshire

A true heritage breed, the Hampshire Down is an amalgamation of several other heritage British breeds, bred together over many centuries. They are fluffy creatures, renowned for their wool, and usually run together in smaller flocks. Up North, they tend to be seen grazing together on the pastures of the valley bottoms, rather than up on the valley tops where the grazing is sparser. Expect a leaner finish to the meat, though replete with succulence and natural sweetness.
