Yeah, I know…band name!
But seriously (ok, maybe not that seriously,) there really is a campaign to bring back mutton, and it is headed by Prince Charles. Read about it here:
I love that sentence: “aged for two weeks after slaughter by hanging.” Hell of a way to go. (I hope they at least break their necks instead of letting them strangle to death.) Someone might want to change that phrasing, but it’s not going to be me.
I don’t know where the hell to get mutton here in the US, apart from going to a sheep farmer and buying the stuff from him personally. They sure as hell don’t sell it in stores. Is there any chance of it making a comeback in America? I’ve never had it before - does it taste good? Any mutton fans?
