The Pork

roast 5

Did you know that you can tell by looking at a cut of pork if that pig had an active life?  There are different types of muscles, red muscles are used for endurance, while white muscles are used for strength.  When you look at a pork chop you can tell right away if that pig had a chance to work its muscles.  Another thing to look for is marbling.  When fat is distributed throughout the meat it is more delicious then if the fat is all on the outside.

spare ribsWe have all different cuts of meat, including spare ribs and roasts, as well as pork chops.    Check out our sausages and sweet cured bacon and ham.  We make them with organic herbs and spices and sea salt, they contain no nitrates or fillers.  We also sell ham and bacon smoked at Island Taylored Meats.

apple and sage sausage with label

 

We have  been busy making sausages, bacon and ham.   We use ‘real’  organic ingredients including our own herbs, fresh and dried, fresh ground black pepper and fennel seed and sea salt.

When you  start with delicious meat it is important not to over spice, and  it doesn’t take much salt.  The result is naturally delicious low sodium food!

We compared how much salt is in our sausages and some grocery store ones.  Ours have far less salt.

 

 

sweet cured ham

 

We also offer sweet cured ham and bacon.  The ham and bacon is brined in sea salt, dark brown sugar, and spices.  They are not smoked, and no nitrates are used.  This means that the ham and bacon will turn brown when cooked as any other cut of meat would.

If you would prefer you bacon and ham smoked no problem!  We will take it to Taylor’s Meats for you.
