Description

On the bone for maximum flavour, this half leg of mutton is a fantastic introduction to the versatile properties of the meat, making for discerning slow roasted centrepieces. Good quality mutton has a deep, almost gamey flavour and this joint also has the herbal notes characteristic of the Swaledale breed. This mutton 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 fantastic slow roasted centrepiece.

How to cook

Increasingly in demand from chefs, the matured, deep flavour of the mutton leg works specially well with big flavoured herbs and spices. Treat this cut as they do venison in the South West of France, cooking long and slow in red wine, for aromatic, rich feasts, serving with vegetables, juniper, and peppercorns.

About the cut

Half Mutton Leg

A traditional centrepiece, essential to preparing a good mutton leg is ensuring the meat is of the highest quality. We source from farms that have been rearing lamb for generations, with proven consistency. The leg is then boned, rolled and tied by hand for a neat joint of flavoursome meat.

About the breed

Swaledale

Hill Sheep Grazed On Wild Heather

Tasting notes:
robust, complete, herbal
Region:
Yorkshire Dales National Park

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.
