Foodie Friday – Mutton




We ate mutton regularly as children.  It seems to have gone out of fashion now. So what is mutton – it is the meat of a sheep that is at least 3 years old.  Lamb comes from sheep under 1 year, then hogget from 2 year old's.  Talk about ageism!


The meat is darker in colour and more strongly flavoured – and has more fat. It goes without saying that mutton chops will be larger than lamb chops.  If you find some to buy, try stewing it or in a curry.  Although we just roasted it.

  1. We used to only eat mutton chops when I was growing up. I guess because it was cheaper than lamb.
