Description

Cut from the neck of the lamb, the Scrag End is outstanding in slow cooks, with the rich flavours of the grass-fed lamb melting in the pot to give character and unctuous texture. As such it's a great introduction to just how good our traditional British free-range lamb, promising real character and depth of flavour by virtue of the rich pastures our flocks graze upon.

Shelf life: minimum 6 days.

How to cook lamb scrag end

The Scrag End is an old Great British favourite, and very much a cut for slow cooks. Try cooking the Scrag End with a light broth, alongside lots of sweet carrots, baby onions, and diced celeriac. To finish top with sliced potatoes part blanched, and drizzle with butter and sea salt. Bake at 180°C until golden and serve alongside pickled red cabbage.

About the cut

Scrag End

A great value old-fashioned cut which has made something of a come back in recent years, with more demand for it over the counter. Cut from the neck of the lamb, the scrag end is a primal cut, which means it is separated from the carcass during butchering in one whole piece, before being dispatched fresh and ready for cooking without being matured alongside the rest of the meat.

Tasting notes:
Region:
Smallholding Farms In & Around Yorkshire

It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural diversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
