Mansergh Hall - Organic meat over the internet

Harters | Mar 14, 2008 04:12 AM

I know I've mentioned Mansergh before but, this morning, I'm like a kid in a sweet shop.

I normally send them a big order about twice a year (filling a couple of freezer drawers). It keeps the two of us in meat with occasional "snap-ups" from the farmers market. The delivery just arrived and, as I unpacked it, I'm already thinking what we could do with it.

There's a leg of mutton which will be slow roasted. Enormous pork chops (an inch thich and with a fab amount of fat) will just need to be grilled. Diced lamb will get a middle eastern touch. A half leg of lamb will sit on the table sometime at Easter, studded with rosemary and garlic and surrounded by whatever spring veg the village greengrocer has. A horribly expensive small joint of sirloin will wait for a special occasion. And there's loads of steaks to grill and mince to turn into spag bol and the like. And pork fillet just waiting to be flash fried as medallions with a mustard sauce or quick roasted with garlic and prunes. And yummy looking breakfast sausage and bacon.

And, as usual, it looks great quality. It comes well packed in polystyrene containers with ice packs (which very still frozen) so no worries about food safety.

I just wanted to share my enthusiasm for the product with you and the expected pleasure Mrs H & I are going to have cooking at eating it. Can't recommend this north west farm too highly to you: Hope you decide to try them sometime.
