A few weeks back, a saw a Facebook page about lambs for sale. I pondered it. A couple of weeks later, I ended up ordering 1/2 lamb from Blue Egg Farm. I’ve eaten lamb a couple of times. I’m not sure if I have ever cooked it, but I’ll be soon learning.
Here’s what our 1/2 lamb looked like after processing:
We have lamb for stew.
We have lamb loin chops.
We have ground lamb.
We have lamb leg steaks.
We have a lamb shoulder roast.
We have a lamb shank.
And, we have a mystery non-vacuumed packed bag.
I’ve contemplated buying a half of a hog many times before and never went through with it. I’m never sure if we’ll have the freezer space. A 1/2 lamb seemed like a manageable amount to spend and store at one time.
I’m excited to give a few lamb recipes a try. I hope that the kids like it too!
