Swaledale's grass-fed cattle produce excellent beef* fat that is naturally high in omega-3 thanks to the diverse range of grasses on which our heritage cattle feed. Dry-aged in our Himalayan salt chamber, Swaledale beef fat has a distinctive flavour making it a great addition to the home cooks larder.
"Use a very sharp knife to thinly slice the fat and then lay over leaner roasting joints like a topside or top rump, providing additional fat to baste the joint whilst roasting, maintaining succulence and adding flavour.
Alternatively chop up the fat and set over a low heat with a splash of water to slowly render and produce dripping (or tallow, depending on where you’re from). Pass through a sieve and into a sterile container and it will keep in the fridge for weeks. A perfect fat for roasting vegetables; be it your roasties, or maybe carrots with thyme and garlic, or celeriac. If you use it to fill your fryer you can look forward to the ultimate chips, crisp golden and distinctly
For a slight twist, salt the fat and then cold smoke. If you manage this, then a smoked beef fat hollandaise sounds fairly awesome!"
