Description

Our carvery lef of Swaledale mutton is an impressive mutton roasting joint, perfect for Christmas dinner. This is a rich and bold, fuss-free cut that will satisfy the heartiest of appetites with its indulgent quality. We source our mutton from older sheep, usually aged between two and five years, the meat is well developed by virtue of the upland pastures they graze upon, and ultimately more interesting to taste and fuller in flavour.

All of our Christmas range delivered on 19th Dec to 23rd Dec is guaranteed to stay fresh until Boxing Day *except products containing pastry which are pre frozen. 48 hour deliveries (Highlands & Islands) may have a shorter life depending on dispatch times.

How to cook

This mutton leg is an outstanding roasting joint and as such is the perfect roast for Christmas dinner, with generous helpings of succulent meat. For the best finish, roast low and slow so the sweet meat can tenderise gradually and serve with festive roast potatoes and all the trimmings.

About the cut

Leg Of Mutton

Our mutton range is sourced from sheep in their prime. This ensures rich well-marbled meat that has been dry-aged for a minimum of seven days in our dedicated dry aging room. The increasing popularity of mutton on restaurant menus is testament to the quality of this sometimes overlooked meat. This joint is carefully cut and prepared with the bone in to further enhance the flavour of this rich, flavoursome meat.

About the breed

Swaledale

Hill Sheep Grazed On Wild Heather

Tasting notes:
robust, indulgent, 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.
