Product description

Lean, generous chunks of flavoursome mutton*, a superior choice for a rich, spicy curry or fragrant tagine with saffron and prunes.

Chef Val Warner inspires:
"Sadly, mutton is rarely seen in either supermarkets or butchers but for the Muslim, Indian and Caribbean communities, all wiser for their enjoyment of it. Lamb being the preference and thus the elderly are being ignored most unwisely. Mutton although more fibrous in texture can be cooked to toothsome tender whilst delivering a deep and very satisfying flavour that stands up to being cooked with spices, alcohol and citrus; an obscure recipe I once came across saw it prepared in a casserole with Welsh laverbread, capers and oranges! 

For those who like their lamb lambier and mutton is certainly a fuller tasting, stronger, deeper, fattier joy that with a little more concentration should see a long overdue comeback. In larger pieces and a long slow cook is best.

I like to cook diced mutton with dried chamomile, dried fig leaves, wine and honey or with oranges, onions, black peppercorns and red wine. Either served with buttered, dill rice is a wonderful thing.

Biryani in its true form under a pastry lid** is a rare sight and a dinner party showpiece when breaking into it before your guests.

In Caribbean curries diced mutton is often the replacement for goat, so very heavy and pleasing with rice and peas and fried plantains. A winner. But don’t plan on doing anything afterwards."

*By virtue of its 2+ years of age spent living wild and free on the Yorkshire Dales, our heritage breed mutton has a full and rich flavour, characterised by an entirely natural diet of grasses, herbs and heather; this unique taste is its crowning glory. Swaledale Diced Mutton is Always Fresh Never Frozen®, expertly butchered to order, vacuum packed, and shipped in recyclable packaging to arrive safely insulated and ready to enjoy.
