Organic Leg of Mutton

An indulgent cut that doesn't hold back on flavour

If you're looking for a roasting joint that delivers satisfying flavour and second-to-none texture, a Coombe Farm Organic leg of mutton will tick all of the boxes. This is an old-school cut that tastes exactly as it should: grassy, rich and distinctive. As it comes from a sheep that's over 2 years old, it has depth of flavour that can stand up to powerful sauces, hold it's own with robust accompaniments and grab the dinner-table limelight. We love this recipe by Gill Meller

Before farming became commercial and industrialized, mutton was a common feature on British tables, appreciated for its characteristic flavour. During the Second World War, when meat was scarce, very old sheep were slaughtered and eaten and this seems to have marked a turn in the tide of mutton's popularity. Remembering the tough, chewy mutton they'd had in the days of war, people turned instead to lamb and it's lamb that's taken preference ever since. We're keen to support a renaissance in mutton, though. It's a fully free-range meat, slow-grown to maturity and it represents a properly frugal approach to farming that appeals to us. When our ewes can no longer produce lambs they give us mutton, which seems like a pleasingly waste-free system to us.

Though you might like your leg of lamb cooked very rare, leg of mutton is better to suited to a slightly longer roast, leaving it still juicy but just blushing pink inside. To make sure it's absolutely perfect, make sure you let it rest, well wrapped in foil, for at least half an hour before carving. When it's cooked medium the internal temperature will read 65 to 70°C on a meat thermometer. A sharp, herby sauce made from finely chopped mint, parsley and chives with some crushed garlic and a good splosh of red-wine vinegar brings out the richness of the meat.
