WHAT IS ORGANIC OFFAL?​

As we value every animal we rear, we’re big believers in our nose to tail philosophy - making use of the entire carcass. Cuts like liver, kidney and heart are packed full of nutritional goodness and flavour, with the added bonus of being thrifty, too.

Ingredients

  • 500g parsnips
  • 2 tbsp organic beef tallow
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C whilst you prepare your parsnips.
  2. Peel your parsnips and quarter them lengthways. 
  3. In a large pan, spoon in the organic beef tallow.
  4. Pop your pan in your oven and roast until your tallow is melted and approaching smoking hot.
  5. Rub your parsnips all over with your salt and carefully add them to your hot tray. They will sizzle so add a few at a time. 
  6. Begin roasting them in the oven.
  7. After 20 minutes, remove your tray from the oven and pour over your maple syrup and scatter over the leaves from your thyme. Give your pan a good shake. Return it to your oven for a further 15 minutes or until your parsnips are golden brown and crisp, but not overly coloured.
  8. Taste one, and season with more salt to taste.
